Rio de Janeiro: Santos have blamed Robinho's high salary demands for the club's failure to lure the AC Milan winger back to Brazil.
Talks over a possible transfer broke down Wednesday after the 29-year-old refused to reduce his $500,000-a-month wage request, reports Xinhua.
"The decision is definitive unless something changes on the other side. Milan finished up at a pretty reasonable price-tag, less than six million euros. What Robinho wants to earn coupled with what the club would've paid Milan, creates a figure that is unreasonable for any Brazilian club," Santos president Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro said Friday.
