Ronaldinho to Chelsea or Milan; but not in January

Barcelona appear to be seriously considering the future of Ronaldinho after the Brazilian's lackluster start to their current league campaign.

They do not wish to break-up the side mid-way through the season in the January transfer window, but it seems they could be willing to sell Ronaldinho come the end of the season. With Chelsea and AC Milan ready to offer ten of millions for the player, Barcelona may decide that it is best to sell him now before his market value deteriorates.

The only real issue is whether they can live without the money that Ronaldinho brings to the club through merchandise and sponsorship deals. Although they feel he is unlikely to return to the form of two years ago, the financial incentive for keeping him may be enough to see him stay at the Nou Camp for another few years.
