Seedorf: 'I've had Corinthians talks'

Milan star Clarence Seedorf has opened the door to the interest from Corinthians. “Until today it had been informal conversations...”

News emerged overnight from Brazil that Corinthians were preparing an offer for the Dutch veteran, whose contract with the Rossoneri expires at the end of the season.

“Up until today it had been only informal and initial conversations, but now I have spoken to Ronaldo,” Seedorf told RedeTV.

“I am concentrated on winning the Scudetto, but after my contract with Milan expires, I will listen to proposals from clubs like Corinthians.

“Brazil is a country that I love.”

Ronaldo has marketing links with Corinthians and was also instrumental in bringing ex-Roma striker Adriano to the club last month.

Milan have not yet offered a contract extension, so with the June 30 deadline looming, it looks as if Seedorf is ready to move on.

Other clubs have shown an interest too, including Germans Wolfsburg, but there are personal reasons for Seedorf to go to Brazil.

His wife is Brazilian and he already has an apartment in Rio de Janeiro. The only problem, according to local media, is that he has said in the past he is a fan of Flamengo.
