West Ham United have been encouraged to bid for AC Milan superstar Ronaldinho.

The People says Irons owners David Gold and David Sullivan are looking into the idea of bringing the two-time World Footballer of the Year to Upton Park.

Ronaldinho only turned 30 in March and is available for around £6 million though his wage demands would still be upwards of £90,000-a-week.

Several Premier League clubs have been sounded out about the Brazilian but it is believed that West Ham are the only one to have shown a real interest.

Milan are keen to offload Ronaldinho's £150,000-a-week deal from their wage bill, leading to his name being circulated among Premier League clubs.
