Ronaldinho's agent Roberto De Assis confirmed the approach towards Ronaldinho from the English counterpart, but they face stiff competition from home club Gremio.
"Blackburn have contacted us. There is also other interest in England but this is confidential,"
Blackburn's new owners, Venky's, also expressed their interest in signing the former Barcelona wizard:
Ronaldinho is highly unexpected to join the Lancashire club, preferring a move home to consider contracts with the likes of Gremio, Flamengo and Palmeiras all keen on his services.
To be honest, I wasn't expecting any truth behind this but when Assis confirmed it, I just started laughing hysterically. I mean, what player in their right mind, would make a move from one of the world's finest clubs, to a club that regularly challenges for 10th spot, it's just madness.
This comes after days of uncertainty regarding the Brazilian's exit from the San Siro, and now it looks like it's done and dusted as he'd prefer a move back to Brazil.
