Ronaldinho has been officially presented as an AC Milan player following his move from Barcelona.

The Brazilian playmaker agreed a deal with the Rossoneri earlier in the week to bring an end to one of the summer's long-running transfer sagas.

Manchester City of the Premier League had also been interested in signing Ronaldinho and made a good offer for his services.

However, Milan was always the 28-year-old's preferred destination and he has now put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal at the San Siro.

Ronaldinho will be hoping to rediscover his best form after a disappointing final season at Barcelona.

Milan have confirmed that he will be allowed to represent his country at the Olympic Games in Beijing next month in a bid to improve his fitness.

The Italian club have also announced that they will not be looking to make any more signings this summer after spending in the region of £14.5million on Ronaldinho.
