Ronaldinho has played down reports of quitting AC Milan for a return to Brazil next year.

Ronie insists he won't leave Milan before his contract expires in 2011. This despite six clubs, Gremio, Santos, Flamengo, Corinthians, Sao Paolo and Botafogo, chasing his signature.

"Playing in the Brazilian championship is something different," Ronaldinho said. "I never had the opportunity to win the Brazilian championship. It's very nice to see Adriano, who is a friend, become champion with Flamengo after all that he suffered in Italy."
