Ronaldinho's brother-agent meets with AC Milan

Ronaldinho's brother and agent has met with AC Milan officials and the Brazilian is likely to join the Italian club if he leaves FC Barcelona, local media reported Wednesday.

"There's a good chance," Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi was reported as saying of a possible transfer for the two-time FIFA player of the year, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport.

Ronaldinho's brother, Roberto Assis, met with Milan vice president Adriano Galliani on Tuesday, according to the reports.

"Barcelona deserves great respect. The relationship is optimal. There are no problems. But my brother can't avoid being attracted to Milan," Assis told the Gazzetta. "There is a Brazilian family here that always welcomes us."

Assis also represents Milan's Brazilian forward Ricardo Oliveira. The Rossoneri roster includes five other Brazilians: Ronaldo, Kaka, Dida, Cafu and Serginho.

Ronaldinho's contract with Barcelona expires in 2010 and is worth EUR8 million (US$10.6 million) per season, reports AP.

"Milan has always said that it is ready to intervene if Ronaldinho leaves Barcelona," Galliani said. "But I don't have any intention of putting pressure on my friend (Barcelona president) Joan Laporta. Ronaldinho has another three years on his contract with the Catalans and we don't see any signs of it breaking."
