Real Ronaldo Set For Man City Move?

Brazilian legend Ronaldo could be on the verge of a move to Manchester City, with the Daily Telegraph claiming that the former Milan man has held talks with the Premiership club over a possible transfer.




The 31-year-old free agent is currently recovering from injury after he severed a tendon in his knee playing for Milan against Livorno in February.

After a successful operation in Paris, it was revealed that he would be out of action for at least nine months. Ronaldo’s rehabilitation is said to be going well, and well ahead of schedule, but after his contract at Milan expired at the end of June, the Italian club refused to offer him a new deal.

Now a free agent, Ronaldo has been linked to a number of clubs, including Flamengo, but the Daily Telegraph claims that El Fenomeno could be set for a sensational move to Man City.

The Blues are looking for a big international name, for commercial reasons, and there are few bigger in the game than Ronaldo, who is a three time FIFA World Player of the Year, and the top scorer in the history of the World Cup.

The Telegraph claims that Ronaldo has held informal talks over a possible move before the end of this week, but first the Brazilian must prove his fitness, as there are concerns over his weight.

City's executive chairman Garry Cook appeared to admit an imminent move for Ronaldo when he told the Telegraph: “I've got to change the culture here. Today you can grow quicker than it took Manchester United. We just need a superstar.

“China and India are gagging for football content to watch and we're going to tell them that City is their great content.

“We are a global franchise entity. We told [manager] Mark Hughes not to come here if he thought we didn't need a superstar.”

Man City failed earlier this summer in their bid for one superstar – Ronaldinho. Now they could succeed in a move for his compatriot and former namesake Ronaldo.

i dont think he can adapt to the premierleague though.
look at his size and consider his age with the multiple injuries! he should join becks in the amatuers not the premierleague, the toughest in the world (in terms physically and standard of football) .

he's still got the strength and acceleration to get goals in the prem, but he would def only score a max of 15-20 goals in all comps cause he'd get injured for a good 30 or 40% of the season

Signing Ronaldo is a huge risk. He will demand extremely high wages and he has suffered numerous serious injuries during his career. How that guy could ever pass a medical is beyond me.
