Brazilian media have reported that Ronaldinho has agreed to leave AC Milan and return home with Flamengo.
The GloboEsporte.com website claimed on Tuesday that the Brazilian star has verbally accepted an offer to join Flamengo and is waiting for authorization from Milan to complete the deal.
The six-time Brazilian champions are currently in talks with the Italian giants to secure his release as the 30-year-old still has a year left on the three-year contract he signed with Milan when joining from Barcelona in July 2008.
Flamengo president Patricia Amorim has confirmed she met with the former Paris St Germain and Gremio forward in the past few days but no official details have been released.
A two-time Fifa player of the year, Ronaldinho scored 12 goals in 34 Serie A starts for Milan last season but missed out on a place in Brazil's final World Cup squad.
The Porto Alegre-born star is currently spending his summer break in Rio de Janeiro, where Flamengo are based.
Ronaldinho helped Brazil win the 2002 World Cup and has scored 32 goals in 87 international appearances.
He also won two La Liga titles and the Champions League in his five years at Barcelona.
