'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ronaldo Reveals City Doors Are Open

Brazilian superstar Ronaldo claims there is still a possibility he could join Manchester City.

The former World Player of the Year is currently back in his homeland continuing his rehabilitation from a knee operation.

He is training with Flamengo, and admits a deal may materialise and is open to further discussions with Manchester City.



'I have talked with Manchester City representatives and I know the doors there will be opened when I get my best shape,' Ronaldo told Folha de Sao Paulo.

'I am working hard to return to my old self and I do it because I love football. I like seeing the fans, the motivation, feeling the pressure.

The 32-year-old is available as a free agent after being released by AC Milan at the end of last season.

This guy is a goal scoring legend. He was written off as fat and useless before the 2006 World Cup and performed better than any other Brazilian forward in that competition. And before his knee injury, he was starting to look good for Milan. That said, do you really want to bring in a 32 year old? Tough call really.

It's amazing that any talk of a famous player coming to City immediately draws in posts from Chelsea fans.. As Ronaldo has said -- City won't even talk to him unless he is back to fitness. If he gets fit it could be interesting playing a Brazilian forward line of Robinho, Jo and Ronaldo in the Premiership. Chelsea have so many primadonnas to pander to that Ronaldo would not even consider playing for them. But City? Who can tell? One thing is for certain: capacity home crowds every week!

A massive no thanks. Would he have a made a difference at Wigan? None whatsoever. George Weah syndrome only fatter. Go to Cheslki Ronlardo.

I believe we could get a couple of seasons out of ronaldo if his knee has fully recovered and dont worry about the weight he"s an athlete and that goes with training.Quality never leaves you he"s got great touch and a eye for goal i wouldn't even worry about his pace look at berbatov .
