Have Beşiktaş made an offer for Robinho?

Updated: July 28, 2014

According to reports in Italy, Beşiktaş have made a €4.000.000 offer to AC Milan, which they have accepted, for the services of their 30-year old Brazilian player Robinho.

AC Milan are looking to offload Robinho due to his high annual wages (€3.000.000/annum), in order to free up enough budget to make some moves on the transfer market. Milan paid €18.000.000 to Manchester City for Robinho in 2010.

He enjoyed an impressive first season at the Rossoneri but did not manage to extend his good form in the following seasons, despite several noticeable performances.

Sportmediaset now report that Beşiktaş have offered the Brazilian a €2.500.000/annum deal and are expecting an answer by Tuesday.




Note: Turkish clubs are used as a ‘tool’ quite frequently in the Italian media to stir up interest for players. Whether Beşiktaş truely are in the market for Robinho remains to be seen, this could just as well be a method to increase offers from other clubs. Either for a transfer fee for Robinho or for annual wages. There is beleived to be plenty of interest for Robinho from Brazil, Qatar and the MLS.
