Robinho’s Milan exit should be resolved one way or another “within 10 days,” said the Orlando City patron.
Both clubs have confirmed they are in negotiations for the transfer, which would see the striker loaned to a Brazilian club for six months before Orlando join the MLS in March 2015.
“The player should be registered in the same way as Kaka and I think within 10 days the situation should be resolved,” President Flavio Augusto da Silva told Radio Globo.
Robinho had wanted to join Santos on loan, but today the Brazilian club announced his wages were far too steep even for a brief spell.
“If it depended on him, he would only choose to play for Santos. The desire of the player is important to me, but there are financial issues and other clubs are interested.”
According to Tuttomercatoweb, Mexican side Tigres are also prepared to take 30-year-old Robinho on that six-month loan spell.
