Robinho has put his future at AC Milan in doubt after claiming he would be open to a return to Brazil.

The Brazilian international has fallen out of favour at AC Milan this season and may have to look elsewhere to get first team football. He has represented the Italian club just 17 times this season has scored just two goals.

Robinho has fallen down the pecking order under Massimiliano Alegri and is behind the likes of Giampaolo Pazzini, Mario Balotelli, Stephan El Shaarawy and Mame Diouf.

The 29-year-old has been linked with a move back to Brazil with Flamengo the most suited destination. 

Robinho joined the club for £14.9 million from Manchester City in 2010 but with his contract up next summer Milan may look to offload the player. 

The player is thought to favour a move back to Brazil to boost his chances of selection ahead of the World Cup next summer.

He hasn't represented Brazil since 2011 but with Luiz Filipe Scolari back in charge, Robinho will fancy his chances if he can start playing on a regular basis.

He told Mais: "I have a great respect for Flamengo, but I am under contract with Milan.

"I'm happy at the club but of course if there is something that is good for me, it will be great.

"I'll be called up soon, God willing, I'm waiting".

Robinho was once labelled as the heir to the great Pele whilst playing for Santos but his career has faltered ever since he made his big money move to Manchester City.

His tenure at Real Madrid was a very successful one where he was nominated for the Ballon D’or but now he is looking to re-capture his old form to revitalise his stuttering career.
