Botafogo chief Rotenberg reveals talks with Robben; ex-Man Utd Da Silva twins

Former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben could be tempted out of retirement - to play in Brazil.

Robben hung up the boots at the start of this season after coming off contract at Bayern.

But Botafogo vice-president Ricardo Rotenberg has revealed they're in contact.

"It is difficult, he has not played for a long time and if he wants he can earn four times more elsewhere, but he knows of Botafogo's interest and seemed happy with the call," declared Rotenberg.

He also revealed they're interested in Manchester United's former Da Silva twins, Rafael and Fabio. Rafael is now with Lyon and Fabio at Nantes.

"Fábio was exciting and so was Rafael. They are good-hearted," added Rotenberg.
