Neymar: I want Robinho to join Santos

The AC Milan forward has failed to make an impression in Italy, leading to rumours linking him with a move away from San Siro and back to his homeland
Neymar says he is desperate for Robinho to join him at Santos.

The AC Milan forward has endured a frustrating campaign to date and failed to refind the form which saw the Rossoneri spend 18 million on his signature back in 2010.

Rumours have continued to linger about his future at San Siro, with the 28-year-old persistently linked with a move back to his homeland and his former club.

And Neymar admits he would be delighted if his club could tempt Robinho back home, and partner him with his international team-mate.

"I am biased because he is my idol," Neymar told Xinhua."To have an idol back at the club would be something special.

"If the fans want him then I want him here too. But ultimately it's the president [Luis Alvaro Ribeiro] who decides.

"I always want the best players to come to Santos, the doors are always open to good players."
