Santos chief Odilio Rodrigues has confirmed talks with AC Milan attacker Robinho. Robinho is being lined up as a replacement for Barcelona bound Robinho.

"We are talking to Milan about Robinho," Rodrigues told Radio Bandeirantes.

"We are evaluating the requests from both Milan and the player. He is always welcome here, but we have to understand whether the operation is possible.

"Aside from the dream and the desire, there is the reality. We cannot go crazy, so have to keep our feet on the ground.

"We are talking to Milan, but we're still at the beginning and want to continue."
