"The Robinho move was going through, but the sale of both those players complicated matters," Santos Coach Muricy Ramalho told Terra.com.br.
"If they had stayed at San Siro, then things would've gone differently for us. We made a big effort to sign Robinho and we were very close to finalising a deal.
"Now we know it is not going to happen. Milan did not want to finish off the move."
