BLACKBURN have admitted they have a great interest in the Milan star.
While Ronaldinho is with his agent/brother in Brazil negotiating with Brazilian clubs and with Adriano Galliani, and English side has confirmed they are interested in signing the 2006 Ballon d’Or winner.
The 30-year-old will leave the club this winter for the highest bidder and it seems that Blackburn Rovers are the only side who can afford Ronaldinho, as the likes of Gremio and Flamengo are short in funds.
“He is keen to play in the EPL [English Premier League] and I think that goes in our favour,” admitted Blackburn Chairperson Arundathi Desai.
She then talked about his wages: “To be precise [it is] €7.6m for the first [remaining] year and about €8.5m for the second and third years.”
Milan want €8 million and it is believed that the English outfit would be ready to pay €7.2m.
The whole thing depends on the negotiations that are held in Brazil at the moment as returning home remains Ronnie’s first choice.
