The Scotsman brings us word that Ronaldo fancies a move to Man City; tragically the Ronaldo in question is the porky 32-year-old one with knackered knees, rather than the sprightly Portugueezer who currently plies his twinkle-toed trade for Man Utd.
Ronaldo is currently getting back on his footballing feet with Brazilian outfit Flamengo, but he is already eyeing a return to the big time (if you count playing for Man City “big time”). Ronaldo said of his future:
“Paris is a city that I love and they have a great project to win the league title,”
“However, at (Manchester) City I have Robinho, who is a great friend of mine.
“In the past few days we have spoken. For the time being, my only aim is to return to playing, the rest will follow.
“There’s a great bond between Flamengo and me, it’s the team I love.
“It’s true that they would want me to stay. But this will remain a great dream because at this time I have no intention of making a decision.” (The Scotsman)
Man City are a team dripping in dosh, so do they really need to mess around with an ageing and fading star with a history of injuries?
