Despite being nearly a year away from the club’s first MLS game, Orlando City have drawn the interest of AC Milan’s Robinho.

Robinho, who has played for Milan, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Santos throughout his 14 year career, is looking to finish his career in the United States and is interested in joining the Lions ahead of their debut in 2015, according to Italian newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport. The Brazilian has taken strides towards moving stateside this week in meetings with Milan CEO Adriano Galliani in an effort to mutually end his contract.

If the report is true, Robinho would take an extended break before joining the club ahead of the 2015 MLS season. The report states that Brazilian club Flamengo are also interested in acquiring the forward.

If the move comes to fruition, Robinho may be joined by Milan and Brazil teammate Kaka, who has been in negotiations with club representatives.
