Robinho has just landed at Malpensa and will head to a Milanese clinic for his medical with the Rossoneri.
Sky Sport Italia claims the Brazilian landed at Malpensa airport just after 12:20 CET and he was whisked away to the Gallarate hospital where he will have a medical in the presence of Armando Gozzini - a medic working on Milan's behalf.
And, should he pass his tests, Milan will then finalise a deal with Manchester City, who have asked for €15million for a permanent transfer. Milan chief Adriano Galliani is expected to lower that demand.
However, regardless of Robinho's medical and City's asking price, the deal is hinging on whether Marco Borriello leaves the club.
The latest so far is that the striker is deciding whether to accept a proposal from Juventus. Roma are also said to be pressing for Borriello.
Milan sources have told Sky Sport Italia that Robinho cannot arrive unless Borriello leaves. Should that happen, the Rossoneri will try for Robinho in January.
In anycase, they still have until 18:00 CET to help Borriello make a decision and sign Robinho whose medical suggests the move is likely to go through.
