Ronnie rules out City switch

Ronaldinho has categorically ruled out making a summer move to Manchester City. The AC Milan and Brazil star is the latest in a long line of major names to be linked to the Eastlands club since they were taken over by ambitious new Middle Eastern owners last summer. But despite reports suggesting that Milan would consider selling Ronaldinho to City after a disappointing first season in Serie A, the player himself claims that he is happy at the club and will not be joining the Premier League side. Mark Hughes' side were also strongly linked with the 29-year-old attacking midfielder before opting to sign Brazilian compatriot Robinho last August. "Moving to Manchester City is not part of my intentions," Ronaldinho told La Reppublica. "I am good at Milan even if the truth is that I wish I had played more. "I feel good here, with the team, the directors and with the fans. I don't have it in mind to leave this jersey. "It's true that I hoped to become Italian champion with Milan and I am sorry that we have not achieved this objective. "But I promise that next year we will win the Scudetto and the Champions League."
