Blackburn Rovers' interest in AC Milan star Ronaldinho has been confirmed.

Blackburn Rovers' interest in AC Milan star Ronaldinho has been confirmed.

Ronie's brother and agent Roberto de Assis has revealed talks have been held with Rovers about a shock move to Ewood Park.

De Assis said: "Blackburn have contacted us. There is also other interest in England but this is confidential."

Brazilian side Gremio also appear keen to sign the 30-year-old, although they were initially thought to be confident of securing their former player on a free transfer which no longer seems to be the case.

De Assis added: "We will arrive in Porto Alegre in order to negotiate with Gremio, but nothing is decided.

"If we do not reach an agreement with a club in Brazil then he will return to Milan as he is still a Milan player. We are not ruling anything out."
