Ronaldinho: Blackburn bid
Blackburn's owners have confirmed they have made a bid for AC Milan's Brazilian star Ronaldinho.
Reports of a sensational move for the former World Player of the Year emerged on Monday with Rovers' new owners Venky's keen to make a splash in the transfer window.
Venky's initially denied making any move for Ronaldinho, but now they have confirmed they have lodged a £6.2million bid for the former Barcelona star.
Ronaldinho's future has been the subject of speculation for some time with the playmaker having just six months to run on his current contract.
It was thought Ronaldinho would return to his native Brazil this month with former club Gremio keen to sign the 30-year-old.
However, Blackburn have now thrown their hat into the ring as they look to lure the skilful attacker to the Premier League.
Gremio remain favourites to land Ronaldinho, but Blackburn are waiting in the wings to sign him if he fails to agree a return to his homeland.
