Robinho has declared he would like to sign a contract extension at the San Siro, following transfer speculation over a move away from AC Milan.

The Brazilian forward - who has ninety caps for his country - has reiterated his wish to stay with the club beyond 2014, when his current deal expires.

He told La Gazzetta dell Sport: "I would like to sign a contract extension.

"I want to end the season on a high and will give my utmost in the remaining games. After that, we'll talk about a renewal."

The ex-Manchester City man has found himself out of favour this season, but is confident that he can force his way back into the side next term.

"I have a lot of respect for the coach and my teammates, but if it was up to me, I'd already be back on the pitch by now," he added.

The Rossoneri boast a plethora of strikers within their ranks, and Robinho concedes that it will not be easy for him to regain his place. 

"El Shaarawy has exploded on the scene and there's also Balotelli, Niang, Bojan and Pazzini. The second reason [for not playing] is that I've had some injury problems," he said.

Despite this, he is adamant that this campaign won’t be his last in Italy – and that he does not want away.

“I never asked to leave the club. I spoke to my family about it and we have decided to stay.”

AC Milan currently sit third in the Serie 'A' table behind Juventus and Napoli, and host Catania on Sunday in their quest to return to the Champions League next season.
