Ronaldinho: In superb form
AC Milan are lining up a new deal to extend Ronaldinho's stay at the San Siro.
Reports emanating from Italy claim Milan are preparing a new improved contract for Ronaldinho as reward for his fine start to life with the Rossoneri.
Ronaldinho only joined Milan from Barcelona last summer, but he has made an immediate impact at the Italian titans.
The former World Player of the Year has scored four goals in Serie A as well as a crucial winner in the Uefa Cup victory over Braga.
Ronaldinho initially signed a three-year deal at Milan, but the club are ready to offer him a year's extension on improved terms.
The Brazilian's agent and brother Roberto de Assis is reported to be travelling to Italy next week to open talks on the contract and Milan will be looking to sort it out as quick as possible.
