Brazilian striker Ronaldo is refusing to rule out the possibility of joining compatriot Robinho at Manchester City. City have recently denied claims from the former AC Milan and Real Madrid striker that they are keen to sign him when he proves his fitness following a career-threatening knee injury. But the 32-year-old striker still believes a move to the Premier League with the Citizens could be on the cards. Ronaldo is currently training with Flamengo as he seeks to return to competitive action after being struck down by the knee injury while playing for Milan eight months ago. "Paris is a city that I love and they have a great project to win the league title," he told Gazzetta dello Sport following reports of interest from Paris St Germain. "However, at (Manchester) City I have Robinho, who is a great friend of mine. "But we will see, in the past few days we have spoken. "For the time being, my only aim is to return to playing, the rest will follow. "I am training hard and I am really looking forward to playing again. "I don't have much strength in my muscles yet but the knee doesn't give me any pain, which is the most important thing. "One thing is clear, if I didn't have a profound love for football, I would not be here making all these sacrifices."
