Manchester City admits Ronaldinho talks

Manchester City executive director Taweesuk Jack Srisumrid has confirmed in an interview with British news agency Reuters that Barcelona playmaker Ronaldinho (28) is a transfer target of the English club: "We've had discussions with Ronaldinho but we'll see how that pans out."

The talks with Ronaldinho should be seen in a bigger plan of Manchester City to ensure Champions League football within the next two years and to enlarge the fan base both in England as in Asia: "What we will look to do in the summer is to further boost the squad, bring in top quality, internationally-recognised players. Superstars would help fill the stadium and help our global branding. We have the finance for an initial investment period, but we will need some returns at some point and that's where global branding comes in."
