AC Milan deny Blackburn bid for Ronaldinho

A senior AC Milan source has revealed that the Serie A club has not received any offers from Blackburn Rovers for Ronaldinho. Recent reports suggested that the Lancashire club had put forward a £6.2million bid for the Brazilian ace but Sky Sports spoke to a Milan official, who said that there had been no such offer from the Rovers.

The source also said that Ronaldinho had made it clear he wanted to return home to play with former club Gremio.

"The club has received no bid for Ronaldinho from anyone, including Blackburn. There has not been an approach," the source said.

"We believe Ronaldinho wants to play in Brazil. Vice president Adriano Galliani is in Rio de Janeiro meeting the player's agent and dealing with his contract.

"We do not know if clubs are dealing with Ronaldinho directly but he is under contract with us, so we need to be told."
