Ronaldinho’s proposed transfer to AC Milan appears to have stalled after the Serie A side failed to agree a fee with Barcelona.
Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani admitted preliminary discussions for a player had not been successful.
“Yesterday (Saturday) we had a conference call but the figures have not been right,” Galliani told Sky Italia after Milan’s 5-1 win over Reggina.
“Maybe Ronaldinho won’t come.”
Robert De Assis, Ronaldinho’s brother and agent, has agreed personal terms with the Milan.
But there is competition from city rivals Internazionale and Premier League outfit Manchester City.
