Ronaldinho eager to speak with Chelsea owner Abramovich

The Sun says the Brazil star has told his brother Roberto de Assis to begin negotiations because of a "campaign against him" at the Nou Camp.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is on red-alert to swoop for the frontman with a £50 million bid after meeting with De Assis last month.

Ronaldinho, 27, is furious he was fronted up by Rijkaard over allegations of boozing less than 48 hours before a game.

Rijkaard said: "The player told me it was not true. I believe him."

But De Assis rapped: "I'm sure a campaign exists against Ronaldinho. I have read many absurd stories about his nightlife."
