Milan's chief officer Adriano Galliani has confirmed the club's continuing interest in signing Ronaldinho from Barcelona.
The Italian giants want the Brazilian play-maker as Carlo Ancelotti seeks to overall his aging squad which missed out on qualification for next season's UEFA Champions League.
The continued interest in Ronaldinho comes after the Rossoneri have already signed the Italian international Gianluca Zambrotta from the Catalans.
Speaking of the situation, Galliani told Gazzetta dello Sport: "We are trying to do everything possible to sign him. Anyway we will sign a good striker to replace Ronaldo."
The club were also interested in Barcelona's striker Samuel Eto'o but Galliani has said they have been put off by the 50 million Euro valuation of him.
And he re-iterated that coach Ancelotti will stay at the club after the Rossoneri refused Chelsea permission to speak to the coach.
"We don't sell champions, neither the coach," he said, before speaking of the goal-keeping situation at the club.
"One of the three keepers will be Abbiati. I've spoke with Dida and he doesn't want to leave. He reassures me in three months he will come back being a regular," said Galliani.
He added that striker Marco Borriello will come back but he has loaned midfielder Yoann Gourcuff to Bordeaux, while Galatasaray have asked for defender Dario Simic.
