The 3rd round draw for the 2010/11 Carling Cup has thrown up some cracking ties – click here for full draw and best odds.

Manchester City striker Robinho is on the verge of joining Milan.

The Brazil international is undergoing a medical with the San Siro club, although no deal has yet been confirmed between the two clubs.

“Robinho is in Galliate for a medical and he will then come to Milanello (Milan training ground),” a Milan spokesperson told BBC Sport.

The 26-year-old joined Manchester City for a British record fee of £32.5m from Real Madrid in the summer of 2008.

However, the playmaker has never really settled at the Eastlands outfit and was loaned to Brazilian side Santos in January 2010.

Robinho turned down a move to Turkish club Fenerbahce this summer in the hope that a move to Italy or Spain would materialise.

“I am very happy,” said Robinho to Sky Italia. “Milan is an excellent club.”

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is holding talks with Manchester City over a deal for the forward.

A spokesman for the Rossoneri club confirmed: “Mr Galliani is working in this direction but we will have to wait and see.”
