Ronaldinho has broken his silence to warn that none of his Brazilian suitors has come close to meeting AC Milan's asking price. [LNB]Sportsmail revealed last week that the playmaker was being offered around England for £7million and the only club to come close to figure is Blackburn's £6.2m. [LNB]Back to Brazil: Ronaldinho looks set for a move back to Italy[LNB]It is understood that no one in Brazil has so far offered even half that figure, with Gremio, Flamengo and Palmeiras instead concentrating on instead putting together attractive offers to the player. [LNB] Admission: Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed Ronaldinho is heading back to Brazil[LNB]While all three clubs farcically claimed to be on the brink of clinching the deal on Tuesday, he gave a nod towards hometown club Gremio but warned they all had to up their game. [LNB]'I am not subject to auction,' said the 30-year-old. [LNB]'If it were down to me I would already be wearing the Gremio shirt, even on less money. [LNB]'The problem is not the proposal they made to me, but what Milan are asking for. Nobody has come close.' [LNB]It remains unlikely that Blackburn can take advantage of the impasse and puts pressure on Milan to reduce their demands. [LNB]Rather than move to Lancashire, hewould seem willing to sit out the final six months of his contract andreturn home on a Bosman free. [LNB]AC Milan chief executive AdrianoGalliani is in Rio de Janeiro to try to wrap up a deal and the Serie Aleaders coach Massimiliano Allegri confirmed his player has his heartset on home.[LNB]'We are all sorry to lose a playerof the quality of Ronaldinho,' said Allegri, who has recentlyoverlooked the two-time World Player of the Year in favour of formerManchester City flop Robinho. [LNB]'But he has made a life choice by going to Brazil.' [LNB] £20m? No thanks, I'd rather play for Gremio!
