Lionel Messi is hoping Barcelona team-mate Ronaldinho will stay at Camp Nou next season.
Ronaldinho has been linked with a move away from Barca with a number of clubs reported to be keen to sign him.
Argentine prodigy Messi is keen to see Ronaldinho stay at Barcelona, stating he has learned from playing alongside the Brazilian.
“At Barca, we want everyone to remain at the club. If he goes, I will be sad,” said Messi.
“He has helped me a lot to integrate into the team. Any team would like to have him. I still hope that he will stay.”
Meanwhile, Milan president Silvio Berlusconi remains confident of signing Ronaldinho and claims he will not be the only high profile signing to join the club this summer.
“Ronaldinho wants to come to Milan, that is clear,” Berlusconi told Sky Italia. “First of all because this club is the world champion, secondly as there are so many Brazilians and third everyone knows how well we treat our athletes.
“Perhaps we pay a little less than other sides, but we give them a lot more glory.”
“Another very important player is on the way. He is a powerful centre-forward who I shall not name.
“We are ready to sign two world class players for next season and there will be world class players in defence, too.”
