Ronaldinho is looking forward to David Beckham’s impending arrival in Milan and has even offered to share free-kick duties with the England international.
The Italian club have confirmed a deal has been struck with MLS outfit LA Galaxy to take the midfielder on loan in January.
Beckha will play alongside a number of football’s biggest names and one such, Ronaldinho, is already looking forward to striking up a partnership.
“He’s a great champion. I hope he’s happy with us. We’ll take turns taking free-kicks,” Ronaldinho told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I’ve met him in the past and I have always been struck by his class.”
There has been no official line on the exact length of the loan period but Milan president Adriano Galliani has again ruled out making the move a permanent arrangement.
“No one has spoken of a permanent transfer. The hypothesis is not possible because he has a contract with Galaxy, who don’t want to let him go,” he said.
“I hope it’s a painful goodbye (at the end of the loan) because that would mean he’s done well.”
