Ronaldinho announces plans

Ronaldinho has confirmed his intention to leave AC Milan and return to Brazil in a press conference.

Allegri: Ronaldinho returning to Brazil

Ronaldinho, 30, has been in discussions with Flamengo, Gremio, Palmeiras and Corinthians, and he says "nothing has yet been decided" about his future.

However, having had few opportunities and made little impact since compatriot Leonardo left Milan at the end of last season, he will be leaving the San Siro.

"I was happy with Leonardo at the helm, but after his departure and the change of system, I decided to return to Brazil," he said.

"I still feel myself to be a real player and an important talent with the World Cup coming in four years. I spoke to [Milan vice-president Adriano] Galliani, he respected my request and I am very grateful.

"It has been a wonderful experience and after two and a half years I have only positive memories of Milan."

Galliani has revealed Milan are keen to see Ronaldinho join Flamengo.

"We will examine the offers of the four clubs. I am personally a supporter of Flamengo and if possible would be his destination, but the final decision will be made along with the club.

"I can officially confirm Milan have accepted Ronaldinho's transfer request, but we have not terminated his contract. We want to help him play in Brazil, even though his exit brings great pain to president Silvio Berlusconi."
