Milan set to unveil Ronaldinho

New AC Milan signing Ronaldinho will be formally unveiled by the Serie A club on Thursday evening.

Ronaldinho, who has completed a 18.5-million-euro move from Barcelona, will now be presented to the Rossoneri fans, the AFP reported.

A club statement read: "Ronaldinho will be unveiled at the San Siro Stadium at 21.30 (local time) to his new fans.

"The entrance will be free for all Rossoneri fans."

The Brazilian arrived in Milan on Wednesday ahead of the start of their pre-season training.

"I can confirm I desperately wanted Milan. Many things have happened, but in the end I am a Rossonero," he said.

"I'm happy to be here and I repeat, I hope to make the Milan crowd joyful," said the world champion.

The 2004 and 2005 World Player of the Year will be in familiar company at San Siro alongside four fellow Brazilians, including 2007 World Player of the Year Kaka and teen prodigy Alexandre Pato.
