Galliani: Robinho move very far away

Adriano Galliani has confirmed that Milan are in talks with Orlando City for Robinho, but has claimed that a move is ‘very far away’.

The Brazilian attacker has been strongly linked with a move away from San Siro, with the MLS outfit’s owner admitting that they were in ‘advanced talks’ to sign the forward.

However, the Rossoneri director has insisted that a transfer is still a distant possibility.

“Robinho? We're waiting for other offers. We will see what happen,” he told reporters.

“We're in talks with Orlando City and they have made an offer, but we are still very far away from reaching an agreement.”

Conversation then turned to Alessio Cerci, and the chances of getting Adel Taarabt on a permanent basis.

“Cerci? We can't do anything until Robinho leaves.

“Taarabt is a possibility, but Inzaghi prefers a left-footed winger, and we will try to fulfill his wish.”

Finally, Galliani spoke about links with Shakhtar Donetsk forward Douglas Costa.

“I've never talked about Douglas Costa. He's a very good player, but his buy-out clause is set at €50m, so he's out of our reach.”
