The Sun reckon that Chelsea could get their hands on Man City target Ronaldinho this summer, as the Stamford Bridge club plan the mother of all spending sprees. The press is chattering incessantly about who Big Phil is going to make a move for, and The Sun’s money is on the Gene Hackman-lookalike reeling in Ronaldinho.
“RONALDINHO sent out a dramatic plea to new Chelsea manager Phil Scolari: Sign me and I’ll resurrect my career.
“SunSport can reveal Big Phil will contact Brazilian playmaker Ronnie in the next few days to assess his hunger and desire.
“Scolari is aware that signing Ronaldinho, 28, from Barcelona is a huge gamble — after he was plagued by injury and personal problems last season.
“But his brother and agent, Roberto de Assis assured SunSport that the two-time World Player of the Year would relish a new start.” (The Sun)
This could be a good move, if Scolari can reignite the buck-toothed Brazilian’s career, and as for the player himself, he’d be sure to choose former mentor Scolari over Mark Hughes’ Man City, wouldn’t he?
