Ronaldo talking to Manchester City

8:11 am on 20 September 2008

The Brazilian football striker Ronaldo is in talks with Manchester City and hopes to return from a career-threatening knee injury in two or three months.

Ronaldo has told French sports daily L'Equipe its a great possibility when asked whether he could move to the Premier League.

He says Manchester City is putting together an incredible project with great players, referring to the club's new-found wealth, secured by the imminent takeover by an Abu Dhabi-based company.

But earlier in the week City confirmed there had been initial interest in Ronaldo but insisted they were no longer pursuing him.
