    Robinho has turned down an offer from Turkish club Besiktas, according to Football Italia.

    He has long been rumored with a move away from the San Siro since falling out of the main rotation after a slew of inconsistent performances.

    If Binho does leave, it'll most likely be to his native Brazil.
