Santos chief Nei Pandolfo has admitted they're exploring the prospect of re-signing AC Milan star Robinho. The Brazilian giants are actively seeking outside sponsorship to fund the sensational move.

Pandolfo told TMW: "We're interested in him. He is a great player and I would like him to return. But we have to see if there are the conditions to do it. The world is going through a difficult period from an economic point of view.

"We will see, the intention is to take him to Santos. But now all talk would be premature."
