Sheva, Ronnie Deals Not Straightforward for Milan, April 24th, 2008 4PM



AC Milan wants Ronaldinho and Andriy Shevchenko, and Ronaldinho and Andriy Shevchenko want to move to AC Milan. However, reports that the moves will not be so simple, as there's likely to be wrangling over the players' transfer fees. Already Milan VP Adriano Galliani has indicated that Milan and Barcelona, Ronaldinho's current employer, are miles apart in their valuation of the Brazilian. However, Barcelona holds the cards here, as both Manchester City and Tottenham of the English Premier League have also expressed interest in the player, which is sure to drive up his price tag.

Chelsea paid $60 million to bring him to Stamford Bridge in 2006.
