The Palmeiras soccer team from Brazil officially entered into the bidding war for Ronaldinho Gaucho on Friday.

The team has prepared an offer to his Italian team Milan in hopes of repatriating the star midfielder for four years.

The Palmeiras administration constructed a letter that will be personally handed to Milan's club president, Silvio Berlusconi, by Ronaldinho's agent and brother, Assis.

Additionally, recently signed head coach of Palmeiras Luis Felipe Scolari personally telephoned Ronaldinho in an attempt to persuade his decision of where he will go after Milan.

Palmeiras is prepared to pay Ronaldinho nearly 800,000 US dollars per-month. However, the club has serious competition, including Flamengo and the Los Angeles Galaxy. Flamengo also prepared an official offer for the athlete on Friday for Assis to carry with him to Italy.

Both Ronaldinho and Assis will meet with the Milan administration on Saturday to discuss the future of the athlete.
