Barcelona board puts Ronaldinho up for sale

October 31, 2007

Barcelona's board are ready to sell Ronaldinho.

While the official line is that "no offers will be considered", AS says several board sources are suggesting the opposite and that the Brazilian is on the market.

For now, no offers have arrived for Ronaldinho, but Barca won't rule out selling the former World Player of the Year in January should the right bid be made.

Directors are convinced Ronaldinho's best years are behind him and as he has only completed 90 minutes twice this season are ready to cash in.

Meanwhile, Barca captain Carles Puyol insists they need Ronaldinho: "He is most important for us.

"If we want to win trophies, we need him to stay. He may not always play well, but he has a good attitude and is working hard."

I think the barca board is making a huge mistake! What are they talking about "..ronaldinho's best years are behind him."? Ronaldinho is still a great player. i may not think that he is THE best, but i think he is one of the best, and he contributes a lot to Barca.

IMO he's not among the very best players at the moment, to be honest he's not even close.

I heard during the summer transfer Chelsea's owner Abramovich was highly interested in Dinho. It will be great for Chelsea to have another play maker in the team. So i'm highly interested to know if he will be heading to EPL ...Chelsea in particular.

I hope he doesn't leave but if he does we got a player to replace him, Gio Dos Santos! ^^

it wont be that bad for barca ... they have great strikers in Messi and once Henry gets situated he will also be good... this will also give Giovani some more play time
