Corriere dello Sport says Milan are in pole position to land the Brazil international, despite vice-president Adriano Galliani's insistence that it was Inter that now were driving the deal.

An agreement between Ronaldinho's minders and Milan over image rights will see the player maintain total control in a similar deal what Ronaldo currently enjoys.

While Roberto de Assis, Ronaldinho's brother and agent, is delighted with the development, he is continuing talks with Inter, who have intensified negotiations in the last week.
