Rumours going on in Italy are speculating whether star footballer Ronaldo might join Flamengo in this transfer window.AC Milan star Ronaldo has rubbished reports he is set for a return to Brazil.

The 31-year-old, who is under contract with the Rossoneri outfit until the summer, has been linked with a move to Brazilian club Flamengo, but insists he's going nowhere.

"It's true that there is an interest from Flamengo," Ronaldo told Gazzetta dello Sport. "But personally I have never said nor written a word in favour of this happening.

"My wish is to earn myself an prominent place in the Milan team because this is the club I want to play for - the club that have always placed a lot of faith in me."

Ronaldo has struggled with a muscular problem since the summer and has made just one appearance for Milan this season.

But after coming through a friendly against a United Arab Emirates XI in Dubai unscathed, the Brazil striker has declared himself ready for the Rossoneri's next Serie A game - at home to Napoli on Sunday evening.

"After this friendly I can say that I am fine, and that I am at the coach's (Carlo Ancelotti) disposal for when the championship begins again against Napoli," added Ronaldo.

"What matters now is that I feel fine and I want to return to playing."
