Robinho: No new strikers please!

Robinho has told Italian champions Milan to not waste any of their transfer funds on a new forward this summer.

"One thing is for sure and that is that we don't need any new attackers," the Brazilian international told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We already have a lot of options and don't forget that Pippo Inzaghi will be back too. He never gets old.

"Next season you'll see Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexandre Pato in devastating form," he added of his teammates.

"They make a perfect partnership together."

The Rossoneri will also be able to count on the attacking talents of Italy No 10 Antonio Cassano.

Meanwhile, Robinho admitted that he doesn't expect Brazil teammate Ganso to leave Santos for his club side.

"It will be difficult to bring him to Milan," continued the former Manchester City and Real Madrid player.

"He'd cost a lot and today Santos are the Barcelona of the South American game. He'll have to think long and hard before deciding to leave."
