​Santos officials flew in Milan recently, to discuss a permanent deal for the Brazilian striker Robinho.

Robinho was loaned out to the Brazilian side last summer, with Rossoneri still paying for the 40 percent of his wages. His contract with Milan expires in July 2016, but after some negotiations both parties agreed to mutual termination, and Robinho will officially be a free agent in the summer, with Santos most likely to sign him.

Robinho's agent Marisa Alija, confirmed that his client has canceled his contract with AC Milan, when he was speaking with ​ESPN​.

"He will be free from July 1," Marisa Alija told ESPN.

"He has already signed the documents to rescind his contract. Now we'll think calmly about his future, he already has some offers."

Robinho joined AC Milan from Manchester City in 2010, and has appeared in 144 games for the Rossoneri and 32 goals.

It is believed that this agreement has open the door for Milan to sign Santos' teenage sensation, Gabriel Barbosa. The 18-year-old striker is considered as one of brightest Brazil's future stars, as he was able to bag an impressive 21 goals in Santos' 2014 season.

Milan have been already linked with Gabigol in the past, and AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani shared his thoughts regarding the player, when he gave an interview to Lancenet, reports Football Italia

“Gabigol? Let’s see, I’m aware of the player, but we’ll have to see.”
