Ronaldinho open to Palmeiras move

Ronaldinho would welcome a move to Palmeiras if he decides to leave AC Milan, according to his agent.

Ronaldinho, 30, has struggled to live up to expectations since leaving Barcelona in 2008 and, with his contract due to expire in the summer, there have been persistent reports that he will be moving on.

Palmeiras have announced their interest in taking the player back to Brazil and, while the player is yet to make a decision, brother and agent Roberto de Assis has revealed a deal is possible.

"Ronaldinho would like to return to Brazil because he has the desire to win the trophies that he is still missing, like the Brasileirao and the Copa Libertadores, and Palmeiras are a club of great prestige," he told Radio Bandeirantes.

"But this isn't the moment to give percentages because his contract with Milan expires at the end of June and first of all we want to listen to their opinion."

Milan and Brazil team-mate Robinho has said he hopes Ronaldinho will remain at the San Siro.

"He has a complicated situation but unfortunately football is like this," Robinho said. "I hope that he stays at Milan because, when he is well both physically and mentally, he is an incredible player."

Robinho also revealed he wanted the club to bring in Antonio Cassano.

Cassano looks to be on his way out of Sampdoria after falling out with the club's owner and Robinho feels he would be an excellent addition to the squad.

"I would like to play with Antonio," he said. "I have already done it at Real Madrid. He is a very strong player."
