Robinho said several clubs “are talking to Milan,” but it’s reported Santos are ready to announce his move this week.
The rumours of a return to his former club have been circulating for months and the January transfer window would appear to be the ideal moment.
President Silvio Berlusconi practically confirmed his intentions when confessing that the striker was “changing his mind” about wanting to quit San Siro.
According to Brazilian media, Santos already have a deal in place with Robinho and are preparing to make the announcement as early as Saturday.
It is rumoured Milan would benefit from the transfer, worth cash plus midfielder Felipe Anderson for a total €8m move.
“I have history with Santos and so it won’t be difficult for them to reach a deal with me,” Robinho told Globoesporte.
“My love for that club is eternal, but there are also other clubs interested and who are talking to Milan. I am a professional and will see what is best for me.
“Milan do not want to sell me and I have no intention of arguing with a side that opened its doors and gave me a chance.”
