The News of the World says Abramovich is prepared to commit £100 million to not only bring Barcelona superstar Ronaldinho to Stamford Bridge, but also AC Milan midfield ace Kaka.

Chelsea marketing chiefs are convinced the arrival of one - or both - Brazilian aces would win back some of the momentum lost in the last 12 months as they seek to grow the Blues brand around the world.

Ronaldinho, unsettled at the Nou Camp, could arrive as early as January, while Abramovich will also seek to trump Real Madrid for Kaka at the end of the season.
