Blackburn Rovers are making a record-breaking bid to sign AC Milan’s Brazilian legend Ronaldinho with a stunning £130,000-a-week contract offer.
The Lancashire club’s new Indian owners have put the two-and-a-half year package to Ronaldinho’s brother and agent Roberto de Assis, and are fighting with Brazilian club Gremio for his signature after the Itaian giants cleared him to leave.
De Assis confirmed: “Blackburn have contacted us. There is also other interest in England but this is confidential.”
Rovers would also have to pay AC Milan a fee but a Venky’s source confirmed: “We are in negotiation. We have been for weeks and now we are making official the interest in him.
“We have spoken four times with Assis. The owners know that Ronaldinho was not being used properly in Milan and is dissatisfied and, above all, wants to play in England.
“He has played in the French, Spanish, Italian and Brazilian leagues. The Indians want to put together a competitive team and Ronaldinho is not the only name in Brazil that interests us.”
“We know that Assis is more worried about Ronaldinho than with money and more interested about the quality of the project that has been presented. We have the best project.” (Daily Mirror)
Ronalindho finds himself at something of a crossroads in his career. AC Milan have basically told him that he is not part of their plans, the arrival of Antonio Cassano from Sampdoria made that perfectly clear, and now at 30 years of age the Brazilian two time World Football of the Year has some tough decisions to make.
He could return to Gremio, the club where it all started for the talented playmaker, or he may feel that he still has some years in the tank and therefore want to continue playing in Europe, but would a move to Blackburn Rovers appeal to the Porto Alegre born superstar?
PSG are interested in bringing their former star back and that may well be a move that Ronaldinho considers before taking the journey to Lancashire and surely at some stage Man City will get involved and offer him twice what Blackburn do, surely it’s only a matter of time before that happens.
If you were Ronaldinho, what would you do?
