According toLa Gazzetta dello Sport andTuttomercato, the L.A. Galaxy is looking to bring David Beckham’s AC Milan teammate, Ronaldinho, to Major League Soccer.
You’d have to believe that the Galaxy, facing the prospect of Beckham missing most, if not all, of the season with a ruptured Achilles, would be thrilled to bring in the former FIFA World Player of the Year.
The Brazilian is under contract with the Italian club until 2011 and, despite the fact that Dunga left him off Brazil’s World Cup squad, he was in fine form last season with Milan. He led Serie A with 12 assists in league play, and had 15 goals and 16 assists in all competitions.
AC Milan is a club very much in transition, however. Leonardo’s tenure as manager was a short one, and who knows how well – or if – Ronaldinho fits into the plans of the new regime.
It’s too early to tell if this is just a rumor, or a distinct possibility. But it would certainly be interesting.
