By Football Italia:

Rivaldo will leave Milan at the end of the season in favour of a return to Spain according to reports.

Spanish newspaper ‘Marca’ clams that the Brazilian will close his Italian nightmare this summer with Barcelona and Valencia apparently interested.

The former Golden Ball winner has struggled to adapt to his new surroundings after he terminated his contract with Barca last year.

However, he could move back to the Nou Camp outfit after they sacked Louis Van Gaal, who was the major reason why he left the giants in the first place.

But Barcelona seemingly face stiff opposition from Valencia who are looking to land a big name player after this season’s disappointments in La Liga and the Champions’ League.

Reports of Rivaldo’s proposed departure have been circulating in Italy for the past few months as stories emerged of unrest between the player and boss Carlo Ancelotti.

Vice-president Adriano Galliani then added fuel to the fire when he recently admitted that the attacking midfielder could quit the Rossoneri.

"Rivaldo is free to decide his own future," said Galliani. "But obviously we are hoping that he will stay here with us."

Rivaldo has only featured 18 times in Serie A, where he has scored five goals, but has also missed two penalties.

He’s scored twice in 11 Champions’ League games and appeared just once in the Coppa Italia.

In recent months his form has dipped considerably, with some blaming the breakdown of his marriage as a major factor for his below par performances.



Great signing! :LOL:

He used to be excellent, now he is absolut crap. Ok he had to settle in, but this year, he doesn't deserve even the half the money he gets. No wonder he is always benched.

Who said Paramatti was a bad buy? ;)

Rivaldo to Barcelona/Valencia sounds excellent :thumb: Maybe we could steal away Riquelme or Aimar from one of the two clubs ;)

I don't. IMO he takes too much time on the ball to be effective in Serie A football, and he's a very selfish player. Plus, he dives and fakes as he definetely confirmed at the World Cup.
