Milan reportedly agrees to fee for Ronaldo

AC Milan has reportedly agreed to pay Real Madrid about euro7 million (US$9.1 million) for Ronaldo.
Milan vice president Adriano Galliani and Madrid official Franco Baldini reached a verbal agreement for the Brazil forward late Wednesday, according to the ANSA news agency.
"We are still waiting a written offer from Milan," Baldini was quoted as saying by ANSA. "If it arrives in the morning and is considered reasonable, Ronaldo could leave for Milan today."
The Italian club declined to comment on the report, which said Ronaldo could arrive in Milan as early as Thursday afternoon for a medical exam.
The 30-year-old could be unveiled as a Milan player before Thursday evening's match at San Siro, an Italian Cup first-leg semifinal against AS Roma, ANSA said.
Baldini did not divulge financial details of the agreement but said that "it's a long way from the euro8 million ($US10.2 million) that Real is asking to release Ronaldo," ANSA reported.
Spanish daily El Mundo cited a figure closer to euro6 million (US$7.8 million) and reported that Ronaldo will be offered a 1 1/2-year contract with the Rossoneri _ the same length as the remainder of his contract at Real.
Regardless, both transfer fees represent a significant discount on Milan's unsuccessful offer of euro22 million (US$28.6 million) five months ago.
Ronaldo has six days remaining in the January transfer window to switch clubs. Otherwise, he will have to stay at Madrid at least until the end of the season.
The forward, who hasn't been picked for Madrid since the Jan. 7 defeat at Deportivo La Coruna, said Monday his difficulties with coach Fabio Capello seem set to force him out of the club.
A move to Milan would take Ronaldo back to the city where he spent five years with rival Inter Milan. He joined Madrid in 2002, winning the Spanish league at the end of his first season _ his last major title.
