Football fans across the country are being left slack-jawed at the news that buck-toothed Brazilian skillster Ronaldinho could be signing for Manchester City, after their owner Thaksin Shinawatra put him at the top of his wanted list.
Ronaldinho is edging closer to a £200,000-a-week deal at Manchester City with Barcelona giving the Brazilian the go-ahead to wrap up a move to Eastlands.

The question is though, will this be a good move for Ronaldinho? Obviously it will be very healthy for his bank balance, but Ronaldinho’s form has been heading downwards for months now, has he got the requisite fitness to make his mark on The Premier League or will he just fritter his career away like he has been threatening to do in Barcelona?
