Real Madrid had many top Brazilian players during the life of the club. One of the most emblematic ones was Ronaldo Nazario, and he marked the era of his compatriots at the club. Another one who arrived on August 2005 to the Spanish side, was recommended by Ronaldo and was set to be a star was Robinho.
The attacker played 137 matches at the Galacticos, scoring 35 goals and giving 27 assists. But that was not the only club in his professional career, as he also played for AC Milan, Manchester City, Atlético Mineiro, Santos, Stambul Basaksehir FK, Sivasspor and Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao.
But after a large career and at the age of 36, Robinho was sentenced by Italian justice to spend nine years in prison, as he was accused of a tremendous act committed at a discotheque in 2013. The Court of appeal founded him guilty of the act and now he will be a decade in a jail.
Robinho wasn’t yet retired and tried to return to Santos during the last months. The club even announced the signing from the player formed in the institution but after the scandal he had in Italy was known, they gave up on signing him and that was how he ended with no club.
