Flamengo refuse to give up chase for AC Milan's Ronaldo

After Milan announced on their website that no talks had taken place, Flamengo president Kleber Leite declared he expected to meet Rossoneri vice-president Adriano Galliani in Rio to thrash out terms over a deal for the Brazilian.

Personal sponsors Nike are also eager to see Ronaldo return to Flamengo, as are his family.

"It's a difficult negotiation, but we are not giving up," said Leite. "And in any case, he could still be signed in July. We have already prepared a contract until 2009, with an option for 2010."

Ronaldo's Dad, Nelio, also said: "He always speaks of his desire to play for Flamengo. It's a certainty that sooner or later he will."
