Milan Playmaker Ronaldinho Agrees Terms With Boyhood Club Gremio

Ronaldinho is on the verge of a move back to Brazil with Gremio...
Gremio president Paulo Odone has revealed that the club have agreed terms with Milan playmaker Ronaldinho. The 30-year-old began his career with the Porto Alegre outfit, making his debut in the 1998 Copa Libertadores.

With Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano on his way to San Siro, it's been suggested that the Brazilian star is keen to leave after falling behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho in the pecking order up front and now the player is expected to speak with the Rossoneri about a divorce.

"On the part of Gremio and Ronaldinho everything is already set," Odone explained to RBS TV.

"What remains now is for [Ronaldinho's agent Roberto de] Assis to negotiate the release of the player from the Italian club. The important thing is that Ronaldinho wants to return to Gremio, where his house is and where he learned football."

Ronaldinho joined the Rossoneri in 2008 from Barcelona for a fee of €18.5 million and was recently recalled to the Selecao squad by coach Mano Menezes after being omitted from the 2010 World Cup by Dunga.
