Corinthians president Andres Sanchez has landed in Europe on a mission to sign AC Milan star Ronaldinho.

Folha de Sao Paulo says Sanchez wants to buy Ronaldinho to help mark the club's centenary celebrations next year.

Sanchez wants face-to-face talks with the Rossoneri midfielder about returning to Brazil, knowing that he will have to take a big pay-cut to return home.

Gremio have already made contact with Ronaldinho's minders in recent weeks about his situation.
