Gremio admit Ronaldinho defeat

Gremio have confessed that Ronaldinho will not be signing for the club, and will instead join Brazilian rivals Flamengo in the next few days.
Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani had already stated that Flamengo were “99.99 per cent” certain to win the race for the 30-year-old, and this has been backed up by Gremio.
Ronaldinho’s home-town team cannot afford the transfer fee to Milan which has given Flamengo the advantage.
Gremio president Paulo Odone said: “It all seemed to be finalised, we were just waiting for Ronaldinho to put pen to paper, but things changed.
“Flamengo can pay Milan a buy-out clause thanks to their sponsors, while we cannot go beyond our limits and therefore we consider the negotiations to be closed.
“We have already told our position to [Ronaldinho’s agent] Roberto de Assis. We had been told ‘Dinho wanted to end his career in his favourite club, but that will not be happening now.”

The former Barcelona playmaker is expected to complete his exit from Milan within the next week. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
