Chelsea boss Villas-Boas plans bid for AC Milan dazzler Robinho

Chelsea are eyeing AC Milan star and former Manchester City flop Robinho. The People says Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas has been alerted over the former Manchester City star who could leave AC Milan if the Italians clinch a deal for City outcast Carlos Tevez.

Milan would exceed their quota of foreign players if they signed Tevez.

Top clubs across Europe have been advised that Robinho or fellow Brazilian Alexandre Pato, 22 - another Chelsea target - could be off-loaded to make room for the Argentinian star.

Chelsea, under former boss Phil Scolari, tried and failed to land samba star Robinho, 27, on deadline day in September 2008, with the Brazilian moving to City instead in a British record £32.5million deal.

Robinho struggled to make the impact City had hoped, particularly in away games, and he eventually moved on loan to Santos in Brazil before joining Milan in a £15m deal in August last year.
