It is being reported that Barcelona and Ronaldinho have decided to take 2 to 3 days to decide where he will go, so it is 100% sure now that Ronaldinho is leaving, I know it seems naive but some people still had hopes that he will stay at Barca. Manchester City is leading as reported by Barcelona themselves stating that the Manchester City’s offer is more “attractive”.
In my opinion if Ronaldinho really wants to play and get better and achieve higher goals he should sign for AC Milan, although am an Inter Milan fan, but am also an Arsenal fan, so to be totally frank he shouldn’t move to Manchester City. If his goal is to go to some club and become pampered and the king and play is minimal effort then Manchester City it is.
The Barca’s president Joan Laporta have told Catalunya Radio that Ronaldinho and his agent who is also his brother “have had two interesting proposals and they are leaning more towards the one from Manchester City. We hope to be able to resolve the situation this week.” It is believed that within those 2 to 3 days if no deal was done Ronaldinho would just join training.
The real question I guess is, can Ronaldinho make all that difference for Manchester City, can one good player lift a club by himself. I know Manchester has some good players, but still they are for sure not the kind of Ronaldinho. Lets wait and see…. This summer transfer market is getting hotter by the day.

Barcelona is a troubled club now, so I expect we will be hearing many many news about many players moving from and to it. It is believed that a big number of players will most probably transfer from Barcelona this summer, after hearing that Ronaldinho and Zambrotta are moving to AC Milan and also that Thierry Henry will go back to the English Premier League, maybe going back to Arsenal, now it is the turn for some Eto’o rumors.
Ofcourse now we know that the AC Milan bid for Ronaldinho has failed, but when the news surfaced at first the thing seemed as a done deal.
Few hours after the big Barca failure in front of Real Madrid 4-1 we heard some news that Eto’o might transfer to Tottenham, then the news that maybe he will be exchanged with Adebayor, so he will go to Arsenal and Adebayor goes to Barcelona. I really really doubt that happening, but this latest news of him going to Inter Milan seems more believable.
The reports say that Inter Milan is preparing a 40 million Euros bid to capture him this summer, Inter Milan now is also trying to get Hleb, I guess that is a done deal, but Moratti now is also trying to get Ronaldinho. Moratti always likes to get big players, but will he be able to lure them to Inter Milan, he just failed getting Gerard after his 25 Million pounds bid was turned down by Liverpool.
Well, if Eto’o does come to Inter Milan that means Ibrahimovic will leave, so is it really worth it, can Ibra and Eto’o play side by side?? Well, actually yes why not, I can totally see them playing side by side, but it is too good to be true, Inter needs to be extra ready for the champions league next season, Ibrahimovic besides Eto’o makes a great attack. I know that some people will start shouting that maybe their style of play wont make them click upfront. Actually what does really matter now for Inter Milan is WHO IS THEIR MANAGER?? SHOULDNT THE MANAGER BE THE PERSON ASKING FOR PLAYERS? IS MANCINI IN OR OUT ?!!?!?!

Report after report, rumor after the other, linking the 22 years old Frenchman to multiple clubs such as Juventus and Inter Milan. In the end AC Milan is where he will be heading this summer. Flamini told his friends in Arsenal about his move this summer.
Well, I feel that Flamini is a good player and I think him moving now at this time is not a good choice for him. He has well established himself in Arsneal and if he just be patient enough he will be a big star, but it looks like his heart is set on leaving.
On the other hand, another Arsenal player is moving, Aliaksandr Hleb is also expected to head to Italy and play for Inter Milan. I guess he will be replacing Figo.
The real question now is what does Arsene Wenger has in mind? Will we see another season of barely buying players, or getting unexperienced youngsters.

AC Milan started the game in a powerful vibe, Pirlo scored one of his typical goals, from a free kick in the 18th minute, which made the illusion that Inter is in deep trouble, and they were.
The game went on to see both sides battling it until Cruz scored on the 36th minute of the match, in the second half and in the 63rd minute Cambiasso scored the second Inter Milan goal, Milan did not do much after that and sort of gave up, except for couple of tries here and there.
Highlights and more after the jump…
Putting the league calculations aside, any time Ac Milan and Inter Milan play each other it is like a separate championship, and Inter Milan was for sure the happy side. Even more happy because now Inter stands firmly on top of the Italian league table 7 points clear from Roma.
I can simply say that the Italian League is over for this season, clubs will be playing now for the second place, it will take something so special and unusual to make Inter loose their place in the table, I just wish Inter would focus now on the Champions Lague.
Here are the highlights:

The latest reports state that Ronaldo who moved from Real Madrid in January of this year to AC Milan will be leaving in June. The player made a good show by the end of last season. But in this season he was injured until 25th of November where he played a nice game against Cagliari. We all thought the player is finally back and will feature heavily in the next games, but unfortunately he injured his calf while warming up for the Benfica game in the Champions League.
AC Milan most likely wont renew his contact by next summer, but the player is wanted, he has some offers from USA, United Arab Emirates and Japan!! Beckham is trying to convince him to join him in LA Galaxy and the Red Bull New York is also interested. I believe that the real money is in a deal with a club in UAE, those clubs will splash loads of cash just to get him to play here. I expect Al-Ain might be the one who would offer such a deal. Japan clubs also interested although I really doubt him going there.
Ofcourse going to any of those places simply means his career is simply over and he is only going to those countries to retire. Me myself as a Real Madrid fan would love to see him play here in UAE, but it is more likely he will join his buddy in LA Galaxy.

Since the controversial resignation of Jose Maurinho, Drogba was in a bad mood. He criticized the club and the management several times. But later the team went on to perform well and he scored some goals and everybody thought the situation is resolved.
Apparently no, Chelsea is angry with Drogba because he has chose to represent Ivory Coast in the Olympic team next summer which will this winter between Jan and Feb of 2008. Which makes him unavailable for chelsea in the Pre-Season and the start of the Premier League. Add to this him not being available this winter for around 5 weeks because of the African Cup.Here comes Real Madrid stepping in with $30 million to get the player as an option for Ruud van Nistelrooy, especially being prone to injury lately.
In my opinion Drogba is not the right choice, seeing how Schuster play he wont fit and it will take him time and effort to fit in, which could be costly in results for Real Madrid. Drogba will just disrupt the squad which itself is not that stable anyway.
I can imagine Drogba playing for teams such as Manchester United, AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Valencia.
