Barcelona star Ronaldinho agrees £58M Chelsea deal

The Sun says Ronaldinho is looking to leave Barcelona and his agent has accepted a five-year deal worth £11.6m a year.

But Ron could still snub Roman Abramovich and choose to go elsewhere. If Chelsea agree a fee with Barcelona, the Brazil World-Cup winner could be unveiled at the end of the season.

Ron, 27, would be the highest-paid player ever on a massive £223,000 a week - £88k a week more than Blues skipper John Terry.

Chelsea will NOT have to pay Ronaldinho's £85m get-out clause after his row with Barca - but they would still have to cough up a world-record £70m.

Ron's current contract has three years to run and is worth around £135,000 a week. AC Milan are also interested but will not be able to match the Blues' offer.
