Ronaldinho: 'I only want Gremio'

Ronaldinho has declared “if it were up to me, I'd already have signed for Gremio,” and offers to take a pay cut.

The Brazilian is desperate for a return to his homeland, but Milan have demanded €8m to release him from his contract six months early.

Flamengo are reportedly able to pay that sum, but preferred option Gremio – the club where he started his career – are struggling.

“If it were up to me, I'd have already signed for Gremio, even if it meant lower wages,” Ronaldinho told Globoesporte.

Blackburn deny Ronaldinho talk

Blackburn have distanced themselves from reports suggesting that the club will make a £6.2m bid for Milan playmaker Ronaldinho.

The former World Player of the Year is on his way out of San Siro after Milan opted to sign Antonio Cassano from Sampdoria.

Ronaldinho has been strongly linked with a move back to Brazil, although his wages appear to be something of a stumbling block.

His agent Roberto de Assis has since revealed that there is also interest from Premier League clubs, including Blackburn.
