Robinho has revealed what he believes would be a formidable attack for Milan, and it involves the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Sweden international spent two years at the Rossoneri, one of which was on loan, and banged in 42 goals in just 61 Serie A appearances. When he left the club in the summer of 2012, he did so for Paris St Germain and a fee of €20million which, at a total of €180million, made him the most expensive footballer in combined transfer fees.
Ibrahimovic helped the capital to the league title last season and has again been in sensational form this term, not least on Wednesday night when he hit four goals in the 5-0 UEFA Champions League win at Anderlecht. Such form has resulted in the forward being linked with a host of top clubs, despite him now being 32-years-old.
Should he become available, which is hugely unlikely, Robinho would love to see him return to Milan. The former Manchester City striker feels Ibrahimovic would be an ideal partner for Mario Balotelli, and with himself and Kaka providing support for the front two, the Brazilian believes this could be a formidable attack for the Italian giants.
“Ibrahimovic is extraordinary,” Robinho told Corriere dello Sport. “It wouldn’t hurt [to sign him]. Mario Balotelli and Ibra up front, Kaka and I a little further behind…the more strikers there are, the more space I have and more of a chance of us scoring.”
