Robinho wages too high for Flamengo

Flamengo are another team supposedly interested in Robinho, but the attacker’s wages are thought to be too high.

The Rio-based side are said to be competing with Orlando City and Santos for the Brazilian forward, but have been put off by his demands.

Milan, it has been claimed, want to off-load the former Real Madrid man this summer, with Orlando heavily linked with a switch.

According to ESPN, Flamengo Coach Vanderlei Luxembourgo has told the hierarchy at his club that he wants to sign Robinho, but after an initial approach the Maracana outfit have backed down following the player’s wage demands.

The MLS outfit are now the favourites to land the goalscorer.
