Ronaldinho hands Man City boost

Manchester City's pursuit of Ronaldinho has strengthened after the Barcelona star admitted he wants to play in the Premiership.

Sven Goran Eriksson is ready to pay around £10million for the former World Player of the Year.

But Ronaldinho, 28, can also expect to land a massive image rights deal to tempt him to Eastlands at the end of the season.

City could greatly offset the costs of such a huge transfer with huge commercial spin-offs.

Ronaldinho revealed to team-mates at the Nou Camp earlier this week that he fancies a move to England with his career at Barcelona finished, says The Sun.

A thigh strain has ruled him out for the rest of the season and there are concerns he has been distracted by his five-star lifestyle in Spain.
