AC Milan and Flamengo have reached an agreement for Ronaldinho’s transfer to Brazil‘s 2009 champions.
Premier League club Blackburn had made a bid to sign the Milan star.
«I believe Ronaldinho’s chances of playing for Flamengo are at 99.9 per cent,» Milan’s vice-president Adriano Galliani said in Rio following a meeting with Flamengo president PatriciaAmorim.
Ronaldinho was given permission byMilan to seek a move to a club back home after struggling to win a first team place with the Serie A leaders as he looks to enhance his hopes of a place in Brazil’s 2014 World Cupteam.
The gifted, 30-year-old former FIFA world player of the year, who shone at Barcelona in the mid-2000s, had looked more likely during the week to return to his first club Gremio.
However, Amorim said: «Flamengo and Milan have reached an agreement over a transfer… we need two or three days to agree (personal terms with Ronaldinho).»
