Man City confident of unique sponsorship deal for Ronaldinho

Manchester City remain confident of the capture of Barcelona superstar Ronaldinho.

Reports in Brazil have suggested Ronaldinho has rejected City's approach, but a club insider told the Sunday Mirror: "The talks were productive and we are still confident a deal can be done.

"Ronaldinho has not rejected anything, but it has become clear that because of his various sponsorship contracts it's going to be a very complicated process."

City are looking at a number of sponsorship options which would allow enable them to match Ronaldinho's £200,000-aweek wage demands.

But that means plotting a legal route through the various deals the Brazilian already has in place.
