Blackburn offer Ronaldinho 20m and target David Beckham


Blackburn have tabled an astonishing £20million offer for Brazil legend Ronaldinho after also making an ambitious loan move for David Beckham.
The forward – who has been told he can leave AC Milan – is being offered the chance to join ambitious Rovers.

Despite the jaw-dropping offer, Ronaldinho remains likely to snub the Barclays Premier League in favour of a move back to his homeland.
However, Anuradha Desai, chairwoman of Blackburn owners Venky’s, claimed on BBC Radio Lancashire: ‘He is keen to play in the EPL [English Premier League] and I think that goes in our favour.
‘To be precise it is 7.6m euros (£6.5m) for first year and about 8.5m euros (£7.2m) for the second and third years.’
Poultry giants Venky’s, who bought Blackburn in November, claim their Brazil office is in talks with the player’s manager.
Ronaldinho, 30, is currently in his homeland after leaving Milan’s training camp in Dubai. He joined from Barcelona in 2008 but has struggled to nail down a regular spot this season.
Brazilian sides Flamengo, Palmeiras and Gremio are leading the chase to bring him back to Brazil but none are able to match Blackburn’s lucrative offer.
Blackburn boss Steve Kean is backing the shock bid for Ronaldinho.
He said: ‘I know there has been contact made by the owners to representatives of Ronaldinho but I don’t know how far down the line it is and whether it will actually happen.

‘If any Premier League manager was asked if they wanted to sign someone who has been World Player of the Year twice they would be interested. That is something that puts us on the map in terms of trying to bring players of that stature to the club.
‘Everyone should look as it as a positive because if we can attract players – maybe not that individual if it doesn’t happen – but players of that stature I think it has been a long time since we have been able to do that.’
Desai also revealed they have attempted to sign Beckham on loan from LA Angeles Galaxy. That is unlikely to come off but the club were ‘open whenever he is ready to come’.
Beckham is set to join a Premier League side – with Tottenham favourites – during the January transfer window with Galaxy in their Major League Soccer off-season.
Beckham would be able to play up to 11 games before the MLS season resumes on March 15. Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has already claimed Beckham wants to join them, while Newcastle are also monitoring his situation.
Beckham is being forced to wait on his move because Galaxy bosses are busy buying an NFL team.
Beckham was hoping to complete a switch to Spurs in time to face former club Manchester United on January 16.
However, the deal is being delayed because his Galaxy chiefs – the AEG Group – are trying to buy the San Diego Chargers for £1billion.
Billionaire Philip Anschutz, who is the head of AEG, needs to give the green light to Beckham’s exit but he is currently devoting his time to the Chargers bid.
