Robinho in talks to follow Kaka to Orlando City

Robinho in talks to follow Kaka to Orlando City

Robinho could be set to follow Kaka from AC Milan to Orlando City, his agent has confirmed.

AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani stated last week that talks with the MLS club over the Brazilian had taken place, though he warned any potential deal was some way off being agreed.

Compatriot Kaka has already finalised a deal to join the Florida-based side ahead of the 2015 MLS season after spending six months on loan with Sao Paulo, and the former Manchester City man's representative has now revealed a loan or permanent transfer could be on the cards.

"There has been a formal offer from Orlando City, as confirmed by Adriano Galliani," Marisa Ramos told Globoesporte.

"The two parties are negotiating. If the move does go through, moving to Brazil for six months first is certainly an option. He couldn't go six months without playing.

"His contract with Milan expires in 2016 and discussions are at initial stages. He could be loaned to Orlando City or even sold. We'll listen to the proposals and see what is to be done."

The 30-year-old Robinho joined Milan from Manchester City in 2010 for an €18 million fee, but has struggled to secure a starting spot in the past two seasons at San Siro.
