Robinho pens new Milan deal

Brazilian striker Robinho has ended any uncertainty over his future after agreeing a new two-year contract with AC Milan.

The 29-year-old looked to be heading for the exit at San Siro after reports linked him with a return to Brazil ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

Robinho’s former club, Santos, made contact with the forward about a return to Estadio Vila Belmiro, but the two parties were unable to agree personal terms.

And it appears the attacker will be staying in Italy for at least one more season after committing his future to the Serie A club.

A statement on the club’s official website read: “AC Milan announce that Robinho has extended his contract to June 30, 2016.”

Robinho made 27 appearances in all competitions last term, netting just two goals for the Rossoneri.
