Representatives of Manchester City headed to meet AC Milan officials recently to discuss a possible move for Alexandre Pato, but were met with a polite but firm no from the Italian side. However, the Milan party took the opportunity to do some groundwork for a possible buy from the Premier League club, in the form of Robinho.

Milan are looking to strengthen their attacking options next season, and Telelombardia believe that Robinho is becoming a very likely target. The Italians have been forced to reconsider their pursuit of Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the Swede wants three times the club's €4M per season wage cap. Another idea was Santos striker Ganso, but the young talent would be difficult to sign. Indeed, all roads point to Robinho.

The Italian giants hope an attacking coup such as Robinho could go some way towards placating their fans, who are concerned at the Rossoneri's lack of progress this season as opposed to treble winners Inter. City for their part could realise a significant fee for Robinho.
