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

THEATER OF DREAMS
THERES ONLY ONE DARREN FLETCHER
2 goals in 2 games from Darren Fletcher. I mean come on now. Even though the MANCS kept bombarding me with messages last night saying that "THERES ONLY 1 DARREN FLETCHER". I still say that he is a f#4king shit player. He is someone in the mould of Luke Chadwick. But yet this figure of Darren Fletcher keeps popping up at and scoring the most important of goals.
I want to ask the MANCS.......to please rate Darren Fletcher and his importance to the team
With regards to the game yesterday I thought Pompey will produce something spectecular as tehy have done so in teh past and they were playing at home. But Calamity and the Portsmouth MUGGS couldnt do f#4kall
UBG has got back from Beijing and as one comment stated lol He was really upset that David Beckham took his place in the end.Anyways UBG has been after this guy for long. More so Because UBG was running for the Bok Post when White was gone. UBG says that without a doubt De Villiers is this weeks MUGG of the Week. UBG cites his choice for two reasons. 1. De Villiers has brought terrible results. The 19-0 mauling of the blacks in Cape Town, the defeat to the Ozzies. SA are playing s@#e rugby. Secondly UBG who is not a solid speaker of the English Language insists that De Villiers must never ever give a press conference again. Does anyone agree with UBG , since they had a fat lot to say when UBG made Rooney the MUGG OF THE WEEK.

Other quick snippets are that Berbatov is set to be poised to join the MANCS before August, Senderos is gone to Milan. It has been said that even Wengers maid and domestic worker wants to swop dusting furniture in London to Milan. Wengers Ferarri was damaged, they had to send it to Milan to get fixed. Maybe he must replace Ancelotti, take Fabregas and Toure and Milan will be Arsenal...............
Also Penaltino has made a public statement that he deserves the World Player of the Year Trophy as no one came close to him, the whole of last season
