Ronaldinho’s options seem to be closing in on him. His anticipated move to AC Milan looks rather remote at this time, which has opened the door for Manchester City.
According to This is London, Owner Thaksin Shinawatra has met with Ronaldinho’s agent and brother, Roberto de Assis, to discuss a possible a Ã‚Â£10million move.
Should City sign the Barcelona ace, he would be the highest earner at the club, with double the salary of current top earner Micah Richards who is on Ã‚Â£45,000-a-week.
With City closing in on the 28-year-old, it has fueled further speculation surrounding current manager Sven-Goran Eriksson’s future at the club. Earlier reports have mentioned that Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari will take Eriksson’s seat. Thaksin hopes that with Scolari’s influence, the club are able to attract more star players like Ronaldinho.
