Radio Globo reported last night that Ronie was on his way to Rio de Janeiro, where he will officially sign a Flamengo contract.
Blackburn Rovers confirmed they had made an offer to Ronaldinho in the last 48 hours.
However, Flamengo's three-and-a-half year deal has swayed Ronie. It will be worth 600,000 per month, plus bonuses and sponsor fees.
It will be a reunion with ex-Brazil manager Wanderley Luxemburgo.
