Robinho: AC Milan forward aware of interest in Brazil
AC Milan forward Robinho says he has been 'sounded out' by clubs back in his native Brazil and is keeping an open mind about a January move.
Robinho has endured an injury-hit season at Milan, but offered a reminder of his value by scoring the only goal against champions Juventus at the weekend.
The 28-year-old is aware of interest from several Brazilian clubs and will not rule out signing for a team other than his old side Santos.
"We never know what will happen tomorrow in football but I can't say I wouldn't play for another team, although I make it clear that Santos are the club I love," Robinho told Lancenet.
"I've been sounded out by Gremio, Atletico Mineiro and even a rival Sao Paulo. Let's see what happens."
Robinho originally left Santos for Real Madrid in 2005 and returned on loan in 2010 after struggling to make a sustained impact at Manchester City.
He left City permanently that same summer to join Milan and signed a four-year contract upon his arrival at the San Siro.
