Chelsea have rejoined the battle for Barcelona superstar Ronaldinho.

La Repubblica says both Chelsea and Manchester City have made a fresh move for Ronaldinho after AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani admitted this week they were being priced out of a deal for the Brazilian.

Ronaldinho is actively learning Italian, but while he has agreed personal terms with Milan, the greater spending power of Chelsea and City could still see the former World Player of the Year in England next season.
