Report: Milan strike Cassano deal

With Antonio Cassano on his way to Milan, Ronaldinho is this morning again being linked with a move to Palmeiras.

The Italian footballing media are convinced that the Rossoneri will take advantage of Cassano's rift with Sampdoria by acquiring his services in January.

Should that happen, Ronaldinho's chances of first team football could be reduced even further after regularly being omitted from the side in recent weeks.

And with his contract at San Siro set to expire in June, it seems that Ronaldinho will leave with the only question being when - in January or at the end of the campaign?

"The interest from Palmeiras is very pleasing for my brother," agent Roberto De Assis told the Mundo Deportivo newspaper.

"It's not crazy to think that he could return to Brazil.

"The offer is interesting, but his Milan contract comes to an end in June 2011.

"Ronaldinho wants to win trophies that he hasn't yet in his career like the Brazilian championship, the Libertadores.

"Palmeiras are a great club, one of prestige, but we'll have to wait and see what happens. We'll have to talk with Milan."

The South American club are not the only interested party though, given that LA Galaxy and even Liverpool have been associated with the former Barcelona star.
