Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is considering making a January move to sign AC Milan star Ronaldinho. The Brazilian is looking for a new club after it became clear that San Siro boss Massimiliano Allegri deemed the former Barcelona star as surplus to requirements.
Ronaldinho’s former side Gremio are also keen on signing the 30 year old but Ancelotti is interested in reuniting with the player he brought to AC Milan back in the summer of 2008. The Italian giants are willing to accept offers in the region of £4m as they will receive nothing for his services come the summer when his contract runs out.
Chelsea could well do with an injection of creativity in their midfield, not least because of the injury concerns over Frank Lampard who has only just returned to the first team after three and a half months out. Clearly a move for Ronaldinho would entail having to fork out for his astronomical wages but Ancelotti may well feel that this is not such an issue as they will be paying relatively little in the way of a transfer fee for the two time World Footballer of the Year.
The Premier League champions have suffered a horrid run of form that has left them seven point from top and therefore the Blues will almost certainly be looking to make additions to their squad this month.
