Ronaldinho To Milan ?

It looks like Ronaldinho may be on his way to AC Milan in the summer. According to his brother and agent Roberto de Assis, Ronaldinho has already agreed terms with Milan and now a deal concerning the transfer fees needs to be reached with Barcelona. Earlier, there was also a reported interest from Manchester City but seriously didn’t see that going through. He is set to earn around £6.5million per year at Milan according to Italian Media.

Ronaldinho has had a difficult season at Barcelona due to injuries and lack of form. He is currently out for the season because of a muscle injury. And with young players such as Messi, Bojan, Dos Santos playing so well, the time may well come for him to leave a seek a new challenge. AC Milan also seems to be an ideal club for the twice World Player of the year. They are struggling to create goals, with Ronaldo being injured and Gilardino in lackluster form and Kaka not playing at his best. They are also fifth in the Serie A and in danger of missing out on the Champions League. The arrival of Ronaldinho may just give them the attacking edge they seem to be missing. And the prospect of having Kaka and Ronaldinho in the same team is too tempting. Milan manager is also eager to bring Chelsea’s misfiring striker Andrei Shevchenko back at the San Siro. Shevchenko has been unable to produce the same form for Chelsea as he did for Milan and so it will be better for him to return to his former club where he is considered a legend.

Currently, only an agreement has been reached and only the transfer fees has to be agreed now. Lets see how this turns out to be

Can Arsenal win the Champions League

A few days ago, if you had asked someone whether Arsenal were capable of winning the champions league, then they would surely have doubted it. After Eduardo’s injury and draws against Birmingham and Aston Villa, few people would have thought that Arsenal can win against Milan at San Siro considering that no English team have beaten them at San Siro. But history was made when Arsenal beat Milan at San Siro and the main point was that they virtually outclassed them at there own turf. Now the pundits are saying that they have an excellent chance of reaching the finals for the second time in three seasons.

Milan started the game well and were playing like champions for the first few minutes after they were outclassed by a youth and pace of the Arsenal side. Even though Arsenal scored the goal very late in the game, it was no clear indication of the way that the game had proceeded. Even though Milan had Kaka with them, he was virtually overshadowed by the performance of Fabregas and Adebayor, two young stars of the Arsenal team. The best thing that can be said about this performance was that it was away from home. For progressing in the Champions league, away form is of utmost importance and if you can defeat AC Milan at home, you can compete against almost any team. Last year, Manchester United were outclassed by Milan at San Siro and if Arsenal can beat them at there own turf, they are sure a team that has the right to be thought of as a future Champion.

Now any team would like to avoid them in the draw for the next round but the best thing i like about champions league is that it is so unpredictable. Anything can happen, so lets just wait for the draw.
