Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has placed his weight behind the possible signing of Brazilian maestro Ronaldinho – as unlikely as it sounds.

“I am not aware of anything regarding a possible signing of Ronaldinho, but of course I’d be very happy if this were to happen,” Lucas told Brazilian website Globoesporte.

“We became friends in the times we had together in the Olympics and the Brazilian national team. It would be great to play with him at Liverpool. Everyone knows the quality of Ronaldinho and what he can do. Undoubtedly, it would be a great boost for us.”

The former World Player Of The Year enjoyed a fabulous return to form at AC Milan last season, but since the signing of Robinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic he has struggled for a place in the Rossoneri starting line-up.

Even so, his lack of regular first team action did not prevent him being nominated for a place in the FIFA/FIFPro World XI 2010 award, and his recent goal against Auxerre in the UEFA Champions League proved that he still possesses wonderful talent.

The Brazilian cut inside from the right flank and with one touch gave himself the tiniest bit of room to curl a shot into the far corner with his weaker left foot.

If AC Milan coach elects to release him for free in January – as is being reported in Italy – he could be a wonderful signing, even just as an impact player from the bench.

Leaving aside his recent troubles, this is after all a player capable of doing this:
