Ronaldinho almost joined Man City

Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho has revealed he was on the verge of joining Manchester City over the summer.

The former Barcelona ace instead decided to join Italian giants AC Milan, after falling out of favour at the Spanish side.

“My brother spoke to Manchester City many times,” the 28-year-old told FourFourTwo magazine.

“Their project is the kind that would interest any player – they could soon be among the best sides in England.

“Lots of brilliant players are heading in their direction and yes, my brother looked properly at their offer.

“But Silvio Berlusconi [Milan owner] had been saying for years that he would like to sign me and I felt in the end that it was the right time to say yes.”
