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 back to his homeland, which the young star would like
Neymar says that he is desperate for AC Milan forward Robinho to join him at Santos.

The 28-year-old has endured a frustrating campaign to date and failed to refind the form which saw the Rossoneri spend 18 million [£14.6m] on his signature back in 2010.

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

And Neymar admits that he would be delighted if his club could tempt Robinho back home, allowing him to partner his international team-mate up front.

"I am biased because he is my idol," the Selecao starlet 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."
