AC Milan forward Robinho has re-opened talk of his potential departure from the Serie A club in January ahead of Thursday's Coppa Italia last-16 clash against Reggina.

The 28-year-old Brazil international claimed former club Santos are not the only club keen to capture his signature during the next transfer window.

"Milan do not intend to sell me and are certainly a club that have opened the doors and given me an opportunity," Robinho told Gazzetta.it on Monday.

"I have a history with Santos and with me it will be easy to agree, but there are other Brazilian clubs who are talking with AC Milan and with me.

"My love with Santos is eternal but they are a professional side and see what is best for me."

Milan face Reggina on Thursday at the San Siro following their 4-2 win over Torino in Serie A.

The Rossoneri suffered a blow during that match as midfielder Nigel de Jong ruptured the Achilles tendon in his left ankle and will be out for the rest of the season.

Elsewhere, Atalanta travel to Roma's Stadio Olimpico tomorrow for their last 16 tie.

They will be waiting on the fitness of defender Gianpaolo Bellini, who has a thigh problem, and midfielder Davide Biondini, who has a calf injury.

Parma, who were beaten 2-1 by Atalanta at the weekend, host Catania on Wednesday while Juventus face Cagliari.

Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has revealed he would like to pen a new short-term contract with the club.

Speaking after his side's 1-0 league win over Palermo, the 34-year-old told Sky Italia: "We have to discuss the length, as I would like a short contract. I don't want to take anyone's money without deserving it.

"I have had an important career, and I think I can continue for another two or three years if I maintain certain motivation and targets. It's about self-esteem, too."
