Milan To Announce Signing Of Manchester City Attacker Robinho On Tuesday - Report

Milan are expected to announce the signing of Manchester City attacker Robinho on Tuesday with the help of super agent Mino Raiola...
Update 18:00 CET: Il Corriere dello Sport has reported that agent Mino Raiola has flown to Manchester City in order to finalise a deal for Milan to sign Robinho.

Although not specifically the player's agent, Raiola has recently worked with both clubs in Mario Balotelli's move to the Citizens from Inter and Zlatan Ibrahimovic's transfer to the Rossoneri from Barcelona. The Italian side are hoping he can negotiate a deal before the end of the transfer window.

According to a report on Sky Sport, the Serie A giants Milan are on the verge of signing the Brazilian international. The report claims that the Rossoneri will announce the transfer on Tuesday.

Milan have been pretty active on the transfer market in the past couple of days and secured the services of Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Barcelona on Saturday.

The Italians apparently aren't done on the transfer market yet though and have now set their sights on Robinho.

The Rossoneri are reportedly very close to signing the 26-year-old attacker on a one-year loan deal with the option to make the move permanent after one season. Powerful striker Marco Borriello could move to Eastlands as part of the deal.

Robinho joined Manchester City from Real Madrid in the summer of 2008, but he failed to make an impact at the Citizens after a good start with the Premier League side.

The tricky attacker was farmed out on loan to Santos in the past six months and now appears to be on his way out of City again, with Milan being his next destination.
