Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini admits he'd welcome the signing of Barcelona star Ronaldinho.

"Six months ago I said that if it was possible I would sign him," said Mancini. "People are now saying Barcelona intend to sell him.

"He remains a great player. Even if he's going through a difficult time, he is a great player who can make the difference.

"As with all great players, it just depends if you train well and make life easy, such athletes can always make the difference."
