Ronaldinho linked with Inter

World Cup rising star Ronaldinho could be set to join Brazil team-mate Ronaldo at Inter Milan.

The 22-year-old forward has been linked with a move to Internazionale from his current club, Paris St Germain.

Italian press reports said on Monday that Ronaldinho had revealed his dream of playing in Serie A.

And the Brazilian was also quoted as saying: "I haven't won anything with PSG.

"I'm learning Italian, I already know a few words. It would make me very happy to play with such a great club."

The reports also speculated that Inter's Uruguayan striker Alvaro Recoba could move to PSG as part of a deal to bring Ronaldinho to the San Siro.

Inter officials refused to comment on the rumours as their players gathered at a pre-season training camp outside Milan.

Ronaldinho scored nine goals in 28 matches for PSG last season and also scored the winner in Brazil's 2-1 victory over England on Friday.

He was later sent off in that game and will miss Wednesday's semi-final against Turkey while he serves an automatic one-match ban.
