The brother and agent of want-away AC Milan star Ronaldinho was locked in contract termination talks last night.

Roberto de Assis spent the evening discussing Ronaldinho's contract with Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani, who is in Rio on holiday.

Gremio have offered Ronaldinho a four-year deal and are "80 per cent" confident of signing him on a free transfer in the coming days.

"It's my first meeting with the leadership of Milan. I do not know if we can define the situation, I have my doubts, but at this point, anything can happen," said De Assis yesterday afternoon.
