The world’s best player (two years ago) to link up with Darius Vassell? My mind is boggling
If Ronaldinho ends up at Eastlands, it will be the biggest transfer coup in Premier League history, perhaps in the whole history of football. That’s not to say that Man City are a small club, but if you were to compile a list of clubs that could potentially sign the Brazilian from Barcelona, it would look something like this: AC Milan, Inter, Chelsea etc. City’s name wouldn’t figure at all.
But it could happen.
According to the Guardian, “extensive talks over the weekend concluded with Ronaldinho mulling over a contract (with City) that would make him the best-paid footballer in the world.”
That would put Ronaldino on almost Â£200k a week, a figure that is astonishing in its own right, but even more so when compared with City’s modest wage structure – how would City’s players feel, knowing they were paid so much less than their new team-mate?
In my opinion, City would be mad to sign Ronaldinho,
