Orlando City president Phil Rawlins was interviewed yesterday by the Orlando Sentinel regarding the team, and the question of AC Milan striker Robinho was asked. Rawlins confirmed that there is interest from both parties for the 30-year-old Brazilian.
“We’ve always said we made no secret to the fact that we want to bring the very best talent there is that fits within our system, that fits within the way we want to play the game.”
“Robinho has interest. He has expressed interest not only coming to the U.S., but coming to Orlando. He is a player of the quality and caliber we want to bring. He would fit well in the system. If a deal can be done, we’d look to do a deal for a player the quality of Robinho.”
Robinho was frequently substituted last season in Milan and was only able to score 3 league goals.
