It will be news that will shake the premiership, a few years after their rivals Manchester United tried to sign him Ronaldinho may be on his way to Merseyside. The player has undoubted quality and was once considered the best in the world by many but since leaving Barcelona the Brazilian seems to have lost his way a little and struggling to rediscover form which led Barcelona to Champions league victories and his country to the final of the world cup.
The rumours started in a Milan gossip column and have spread like wildfire through the football world, now has the reds are dreaming of seeing the playmaker sign for them. Ronaldinho is currently in and out of the A.C Milan side being outshone by his Brazilian team mate ex Man City star Robinho.
Don’t forget Ronaldinho has won the Ballon D’or which is no easy feat and the list of winners is a distinguished one, this season however he has been nominated in Serie A for the Bidon’e Doro or the golden dustbin which is sure not to go on Ronaldinho’s mantle piece.
Liverpool midfielder Lucas has said he would be a great addition for the club, Lucas who played in the Olympics side with Brazil recognises the quality Ronaldinho possesses ‘Everyone knows Ronaldinho’s quality and what he can do. Without doubt it would be a great boost for us.’ Said last seasons Liverpool’s young player of the year.
Ronaldinho’s wage may be an issue as he might have to take a drop to go to Liverpool as the Brazilian currently rakes in 6.3 million a year but his transfer fee would be free should he come in June as his contract runs out and A.C Milan don’t look like giving him a new one any time soon.
Hodgson however has been cautious of the news and although he would love the Brazilian at the club he has played the transfer talk down of several players he has been linked with “Ronaldinho and Suarez are players who we have never even thought about but I would think there is not a manager in the Premier League who has not given Ashley Young a thought at some stage or another,” said Hodgson.
