AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits Santos are bidding for Robinho. Galliani is due to fly to Brazil on Sunday for negotiations.

"We're doing everything to keep hold of Robinho, although I am not certain that we'll succeed," confessed Galliani of the Santos talks.

"Robinho is happy to stay here and has a wonderful rapport with the Coach and team, but his wife and children want the beaches of Santos.

"I hope to convince him to stay here, though he is virulently asking to leave Milan and go back to his homeland."
