Gremio lacking funds for Ronaldinho

Ronaldinho’s brother and agent has revealed that Gremio are struggling to find the money required to complete his transfer from Milan, so Flamengo could edge ahead in the race to sign him.
Ronaldinho is currently in Porto Alegre, in Brazil, to discuss a return to his first club, Gremio. However, it now seems that a romantic comeback could fail to materialise as Gremio cannot afford the player’s wages plus the €8 million transfer fee that Milan are asking for.
Rival club Flamengo, however, have claimed that they have already struck a financial agreement with Ronaldinho should the playmaker choose to join them.
Roberto De Assis, the 30-year-old’s agent, said: “There is a lot of money to go before Gremio can finalise this move. A lot of money. Other clubs, however, have already reached the necessary sum.”
De Assis teased: “Who are the other clubs? In your view, what am I doing in Rio de Janeiro? [Flamengo’s home city]. There are still many things to resolve, first of all the outstanding issues with Milan.
“There’s no point saying if anyone is in the lead, as I am an agent and we all need to be very calm during these negotiations. I don’t think the matter will be resolved before Wednesday. In any case, tomorrow we will be in Porto Alegre [Gremio’s home city].” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
