Beckham wants AC Milan's Ronaldinho to join LA Galaxy

LA Galaxy star David Beckham reportedly wants AC Milan playmaker Ronaldinho to join the MLS club. Ronaldinho's brother and agent, Roberto de Assis, has admitted Beckham is keen for the Brazilian to join him at the Home Depot Center but admits that a move is unlikely to happen just yet.

"During (Milan's) USA tour, we met a few people," Roberto de Assis told Gazzetta dello Sport. "And David Beckham is pushing to get Dinho at LA Galaxy.

"Should an agreement not be reached for a renewal at Milan, this could be an option for next summer."

Ronaldinho is also being linked with a return to his homeland to join Flamengo but de Assis says there is still plenty of interest from Milan.

"To the question that should Dinho like to one day to play with Flamengo, the answer is yes," he added.

"This is his dream. But there is nothing else. We have not had contact and we have no intention to do this.

"Milan offered us a contract extension until 2013 and we agreed to talk about this by December. But the commitment for next season has never been under doubt.

"Our relationship with Milan is positive and my brother continues to think as he was two months ago: he wants to stay at Milan."
