Santos coach Muricy Ramalho has revealed they're in negotiations to bring AC Milan attacker Robinho back home.

Robinho has made just the one start so far this season.

"We are continuing to talk with Robinho," Ramalho told Brazilian reporters this afternoon. "It is not a good time for him, and that can only be good for us.

"He has not been given many opportunities by [Massimiliano] Allegri, so we're hopeful."
