Gremio: 'We have Ronaldinho deal'

The Gremio President has announced “it's all decided with Ronaldinho. All that remains is for his agent to negotiate freeing him from Milan.”

Patron Paulo Odone had already stated this week that negotiations were at an advanced stage to bring the star back to Brazil.

“It's all decided between Gremio and Ronaldinho,” he told RbsTV this evening.

“All that remains is for his agent Roberto De Assis to negotiate freeing him from Milan.

“The important thing is that Dinho wants to come home.”

Ronaldinho is no longer needed at San Siro, having spent most of this season on the bench and with Antonio Cassano coming in January.

According to the latest reports, Gremio have offered a contract worth €3.5m net per season with performance-related bonuses.

He will also be allowed full control over his personal sponsorship deals.

Earlier today Milan director Leonardo Cantamessa also confessed that Ronaldinho was likely to make way for Cassano.

“The players do more or less take the same role, so it could be an understandable club decision. Besides, the Coach has made it clear what he thinks.”
