Gazzetta dello Sport says the moment of truth is nearing over Ronaldinho's future at Milan.
After initially rejecting the prospect of selling Ronie, who revived his career last season under former coach Leonardo, Milan directors are now seriously considering cashing in.
The prospect of making a profit on Ronaldinho, it has been argued inside the boardroom, would outweigh the loss of the Brazilian to the team.
Roberto de Assis will arrive in Milan this week for talks with directors about his brother's future. Flamengo and Palmeiras have declared their interest, while there are also enquiries arriving from the lucrative Russian market.
Any money raised would go to bringing Luis Fabiano to the San Siro from Sevilla.
