AC Milan stand aside for Chelsea in Ronaldinho battle

Gazzetta dello Sport says Chelsea are best positioned to land Ronaldinho, who started last night's 2-2 draw with Olympique Lyon on the bench.

Ronaldinho's brother and agent, Roberto de Assis, has received offers from both Chelsea and AC Milan, although it's been revealed the Rossoneri are ready to throw in the towel.

Milan directors know Ronaldinho is favouring a move to London, where at Chelsea he can enjoy a bigger contract and also a reunion with his former Barca coach Henk ten Cate. Only personal intervention from Milan president Silvio Berlusconi is likely to stop Chelsea from welcoming the Brazilian to the Blues next year.
