Robinho is very close to being announced as a Santos player.
The player even went to CT Rei Pelé this Saturday. Some photos of the player on the site circulate on social networks and in groups of messages.
Santos and Robinho reached a financial agreement, with a contract valid until the end of the Brazilian Championship, but the hiring needs to be endorsed by two bodies of the club. The Management Committee has already given the approval, leaving only the release from the Fiscal Council.
A meeting of the directors at this time should release the signature of the contract. Most members have already agreed to the terms. The board of Peixe, by the way, already gives the contract as closed.
If the authorization is given, Robinho will have a symbolic salary linked to bonuses for presence in the matches.
Santos need to enroll Robinho in CBF on Monday, even though it is a public holiday. This is because, on Tuesday, it will be worth another punishment from the club in Fifa, now because of the debt of US $ 3.4 million (R $ 18 million, according to this Wednesday’s quote) with Huachipato, from Chile, by signing striker Soteldo. Fish will not be able to sign players again.

Cria do Santos, Robinho, now 36, will make his fourth spell at the club. The striker has played 246 games and scored 109 goals for Peixe. He was one of the stars of Alvinegro in the conquests of the Brazilian Championship in 2002 and 2004.

His last club was Istanbul Basaksehir, from Turkey.
Robinho was sentenced to nine years in prison for sexual violence in Italy. According to the sentence, the crime occurred on January 22, 2013, along with five other men, and the victim is of Albanian origin. The sentence came in 2017, when the striker had already left Italian football – he defended Atlético-MG at the time. The player’s defense appealed.
