Robinho Biography

Robson de Souza more commonly known as Robinho, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as forward or winger for Serie A club Milan and plays for the Brazil national team. Robinho signed his first professional contract with Santos FC in 2002 at the age of 18. He made 24 appearances in his debut season and scored one goal as Santos won the 2002 Campeonato Brasileiro. In 2004, Robinho finished with 21 goals in 37 games and led Santos to win another Campeonato Brasileiro. Robinho scored nine goals in 12 league games, and his value continued to increase as his talent became more and more apparent to the powers of European football. In July 2005, Spanish giants Real Madrid signed Robinho by agreeing to pay a fee equal to 60 percent of the buyout clause in his contract belonging to Santos. He ended up making 37 appearances and scored 14 goals in his first season. Robinho was Real Madrid's third highest scorer during his Madrid years; and the only Madrid player, along with goalkeeper Iker Casillas, to finish in the top ten of the Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year nominations for 2007–08. On 1 September 2008, the final day of the Premier League summer transfer window, Robinho completed a €42,500,000 move to Manchester City, on a four-year deal. On 28 January 2010, Robinho returned to his home club Santos due to moving down the pecking order at Manchester City, joining them on a six-month loan deal. On 31 August 2010, Robinho moved to Milan from Manchester City for a fee of £15,000,000, signing a four-year contract. He scored his first goal in injury time against Chievo to make the score 3–1 on 16 October 2010. Robinho earned his first cap for Brazil in the 2003 CONCACAF Gold Cup match on 13 July, which Brazil lost 1–0 to Mexico. He was part of Brazil squad for 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup, which Brazil went on to win.
