Santos confirms Robinho talks with AC Milan

AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has revealed that Brazilian side Santos is leading the chase for Robinho.

The Rossoneri chief is currently in South America attempting to sort out a transfer for wantaway attacker Alexandre Pato, but his fellow native Brazilian is another that is likely to leave during the January transfer window.

Galliani confirmed there is interest in the former Real Madrid man, but he admitted that Flamengo is no longer a potential destination for Robinho, who began his career at Santos 10 years ago.

"There is the possibility of a sale to Santos," Galliani told Globo Esporte. "We haven’t been able to reach an agreement with Flamengo, though, while I still don’t know about Atletico Mineiro."

Pato's move back to his homeland looks set to be completed in early January, with Corinthians having shown concrete interest in sealing a deal. Robinho's destination, however, is a lot less certain, and Sao Paulo vice president Joao Paulo de Jesus Lopes has confirmed that his side has pulled out of the running for the 28-year-old forward.

"We have no interest in signing him," Lopes told ESPN Radio Estadao. "At one point there was an initial interest to understand how the business was, but internally we are convinced that, for a number of reasons, the athlete is not what we were looking."
