Transfer talks stall for Milan’s Robinho



AC Milan's bid to sell Robinho to Brazilian top flight side Santos floundered early on Saturday after the clubs failed to agree on a transfer fee, it was reported.

Milan have slapped a 10m price tag on the talented Brazilian while Santos offered only seven million according to ANSA news agency.

ANSA also reported that another Brazilian side that had shown an interest in purchasing Robinho, Atletico Mineiro, had now called off talks.

Citing Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo, it said Atletico could not meet Milan's 10m euro asking price nor Robinho's wage demands.

Milan's former Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato on Thursday joined Brazilian side Corinthians in a four-year deal thought to be worth €15 million.

The Serie A giants sit seventh in Serie A, 17 points adrift of leaders Juventus, ahead of the visit of Siena on Sunday
