Shevchenko talks fail; Robinho may yet move

Shevchenko talks fail; Robinho may yet move

Talks between Chelsea and AC Milan over Andriy Shevchenko's possible return to the San Siro have collapsed, the Italian club's chief executive said on Thursday.
"Talks over Shevchenko are deadlocked at the moment," Adriano Galliani told reporters.
"Milan were interested in taking the player on loan with the right to buy but Chelsea said no because they wanted a full sale, so negotiations are over."
The Ukraine striker spent seven successful years at Milan before moving to English Premiership side Chelsea in 2006.
However, he has struggled at the club with form and fitness problems.
Milan spent big on Barcelona playmaker Ronaldinho in the close season and are therefore struggling for funds.
Robinho
Real Madrid will consider selling Robinho to Chelsea if the English club offer 40 million euros (US$59.46 million) for the Brazilian forward, Spanish media reported yesterday.
Robinho is reported to be unhappy because Real were prepared to sell him in order to raise funds in their unsuccessful attempt to sign Cristiano Ronaldo and for the club's refusal to release him to play at the Olympic Games.
The Brazilian had been a target of Chelsea and their new coach Luiz Felipe Scolari for most of the off-season before the west-London club made a formal offer for him on August 7.
No terms were made public for the 24-year-old, though British media reports said at the time Chelsea were prepared to pay 19.7 million pounds (US$36.79 million).
