Ronaldinho 'dreams' of competing in the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games with the Brazilian national team, his brother and agent Roberto de Assis said.

"That is one of his goals. It may be the only title he still has not obtained in his career. If he is called up for the squad, he will most certainly go," Assis told website GloboEsporte.com at Rio de Janeiro.

"Ronaldinho dreams of bringing home that medal for Brazil and he always talks about that. His motivation is huge."

Olympic football regulations allow only three players older than 23 on country squads. There is speculation in Brazil that Real Madrid's Robinho, Milan's Kaka and Barcelona's Ronaldinho will be called.

However, both Kaka and Ronaldinho recently upset national coach Carlos Dunga when they asked to be exempt from the Copa America in order to rest after a long European season.
