Ronaldinho's brother and agent Roberto de Assis has claimed the AC Milan attacker has had no contact with Flamengo.
The 30-year-old trickster has been linked with a return to his native Brazil to play with Flamengo, after two years with the Rossoneri.
But despite the transfer speculation, Milan have denied that any move is on the cards and now his agent claims he will not leave the San Siro.
However, he did concede that Ronaldinho would like to play for Flamengo at some stage of his career.
"To the question that should Dinho like to one day to play with Flamengo, the answer is yes," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"This is his dream. But there is nothing else. We have not had contact and we have no intention to do this.
"Milan offered us a contract extension until 2013 and we agreed to talk about this by December. But the commitment for next season has never been under doubt.
"Our relationship with Milan is positive and my brother continues to think as he was two months ago: he wants to stay at Milan."
While Ronaldinho may stay with the Serie A club for the time being, De Assis did concede that he has mulled over a move to the USA in the future.
"During the USA tour, we met a few people," he added. "And (David) Beckham is pushing to get Dinho at LA Galaxy.
"Should an agreement not be reached for the renewal, this could be an option for next summer."
