Ronaldinho is poised to snub Chelsea and join Manchester United.

Speculation that the Brazilian superstar would move to Stamford Bridge in the summer increased when Barcelona stalled on a new five-year deal.

But Sunday Mirror Sport can reveal that, four-and-a-half years after he thought he'd landed Ronaldinho, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is poised finally to get his man.

Ronaldhino's advisers believe that the time is right for him to quit Spain and move to the Premier League.

But long-term fan Roman Abramovich's hopes of landing him could be scuppered - with sources close to the player insisting United, not Chelsea, is his preferred destination.

Ronaldinho's advisers believe that under FIFA legislation the player will be able to buy himself out of his Barca contract next summer for as little as £15million.

His form this season has seen him dropped for Barca's last two games after being hauled off eight times in 11 starts.

But Fergie (right) is convinced Ronaldinho can recapture the form which established him as one of the world's top stars - and would love him to do it at Old Trafford.

Despite his recent problems, Ronaldinho would still command an annual salary of around £7m, but the deal would still make commercial sense for United.

Nike, who are United and Barca's kit sponsors, will also be keen to keep the player at one of their clubs.

Ronaldinho's relationship with Frank Rijkaard appears to be disintegrating and Barca's coach has reportedly told the board it would be in the club's best interests to sell the player.

Barca president Joan Laporta is under pressure to resolve the situation and could sanction a January transfer window deal if he decides there is a danger they Ronaldinho could buy himself out of the club in the summer.

In 2003 Ferguson targeted Ronaldinho as the man to replace Real Madrid-bound David Beckham.

He thought a deal had been struck and later blamed Peter Kenyon, the Chelsea-bound chief executive, for failing to clinch the transfer.

Don't need him, would be very interesting if he did sign, could see Carrick and Fletcher gone if we did ..but somehow I don't think we will sign him.

I'd love it.....:)

Maybe he is past the best days but wow.....he is still a genius - and what an 'icon' for the youngsters to work with.

What a good business move too.......

How many shirts with the name 'Ronaldhino' on it would United sell ?

600 million pounds worth would be nice - debt free again :p

No Way, he's lost his age of performance.
If Barca doesn't want him, then just put him at wasteland, Madrid

Apparently we're supposed to put him were Ronaldo is, because the Spanish media is saying Barca are going to bid for Ronaldo. Good luck with that Barca...

Ronaldinho can play as play maker & Left wing position's & we'v already got Carrick,Scholes,Hargo & Anderson in the middle , Nani & Giggs in left wing .

so, he's an overrated,pathetic,underperfoming player .. so why would ever SAF think about sign him ?!

Sunday Mirror, try again & good luck!!

Barcelona have plans to target Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo if they receive a mega-offer for Ronaldinho next summer, according to a report in Sport

The Catalan daily believes that the club have made contingency plans in case they are forced to allow the Brazilian to go with both Chelsea and AC Milan said to be weighing up offers.

As things stand, Ronaldinho has a contract until 2010 and a but-out clause of €125m, but Barça may be tempted to cash in should a bid of €40m arrive.

With the Blaugrana superstar's future a constant source of speculation in the Spanish press, Sport believe that the Camp Nou outfit feel it is better to be prepared.

The hierarchy at the club believe that the only way to offset the outcry that would be caused by allowing Ronaldinho to leave would be to replace him with another world class forward.

Ronaldo is that player and Barça believe that they would have the financial clout to tempt the Portuguese international to leave Old Trafford, the paper claims in the outlandish report.

Real Madrid and Barcelona have been linked with the 22-year-old over the past two seasons and that interest saw Manchester United increase his salary with a new five-year deal in April.

Ronaldinho's future may be in Barça's hands and his brother and agent, Roberto de Assis, may have stated that he cannot personally receive any offers, but the constant talk of a move is unsettling both the club and the player, Sport explain.

The paper believe that De Assis has asked the Blaugrana about letting the player go on a free transfer if they do not see him as part of their plans for next season.

That idea has been ridiculed by the club and Sport go to claim that while that may not be realistic, Ronaldinho's sibling may have a hand in the stories linking him to Chelsea and Milan.
