Santos expect difficult negotiation for Robinho
Robinho, 28, is an idol at the Vila Belmiro and the president has come under some heavy pressure from the fans to repatriate the former-star.
The AC Milan forward is under-contract at AC Milan, but Santos are hopeful of negotiating a loan-deal for the Seleção star.
"We chatted for a long time on the phone as friends, both about family and personal matters," Luis Alvaro told Lancenet.
"However, I admit to inquiring about the two-year contract he has remaining in Italy, and the possibility of a loan move back with us.
"Nevertheless, it still will be a very difficult deal to strike with Milan. Our objective is not to sow discord with the club we have an excellent relationship with."
