AC Milan 'asking for too much money' for Robinho, says agent

The 29-year-old's agent wants the Rossoneri to lower their demands in order for the attacker to return to Brazil, amid interest from Santos and Cruzeiro
AC Milan are blocking Robinho's exit from the club because his asking price is too high, according to the player's agent.

Marisa Alija Ramos says the Rossoneri need to lower their demands for the 29-year-old, amid interest from Santos and Cruzeiro.

"His situation is a bit complicated. His wages are reasonably high and Milan are asking for too much money," Ramos told Superesportes.

The skillful Brazilian began his career with Santos and his displays led to him securing a big-money move to Real Madrid in 2005 before moving to Manchester City and the San Siro outfit.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has said there have been discussions with Santos, but that the forward's wages are the main stumbling block.

"We are speaking with Santos over a move for Robinho, but there has been no agreement about money yet," Galliani told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 68-year-old also discussed the future of star player Stephan El Shaarawy, saying that no contact has been made with another club about a potential move for the Italian youngster.

"There has been no offer made yet for El Shaarawy," he said.
