Robinho has been heavily linked with a move to his boyhood club Santos throughout the summer but the money involve has delayed negotiations, with Santos balking at the player's wage demands and Milan's asking price.

Galliani admitted that talks are still progressing with Santos and will reach and end next week with the Brazilian transfer window closing, but insists that he is fine with Robinho staying at the club as well .

"We are convinced that we have a strong squad and if someone leaves, then another player will arrive. If not, then we're fine as we are," Vice-President Galliani told TuttoMercatoWeb.

"We are talking to Santos about Robinho, but there is only a week to go, as the Brazilian transfer session closes on July 15."

Fiorentina starlet Ljajic has emerged as a prime candidate to replace Robinho at Milan, with only a year left with his contract. 

However, Galliani insisted that Milan have not made a move for him.

"I didn't say we were interested in Ljajic. I simply said Ljajic has characteristics that suit Milan," continued Galliani.

"He is a secondary striker, he is young, so if Robinho does leave then we'll consider several different players, including Ljajic.

"He is now a Fiorentina player, though and I'm sure they don't want to sell him."
