Man City boss Eriksson rejected Ronaldinho signing

The Independent says Barcelona No 10's days are numbered in Spain. And although a move to Milan remains most likely - if Ronaldo returns to Brazil - his advisers are keen to protect his £6m-a-year salary (net that is) and approached City, claiming their client was enthusiastic about a move having made a similar approach to Chelsea last August.

But City boss Eriksson declined the offer, with high hopes for Elano and new signing Nery Castillo convincing him he doesn't need Ronaldinho's influence.
