Melbourne City may not be done adding world class international quality to their squad, priced as the most likely A-League team at $15 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to sign Brazilian legend Ronaldinho.
However they are still at long odds overall, with $2.40 priced for him to sign with any Brazilian Serie A club, $6.00 for any Italian Serie A club, $6.50 for a Spanish Primera Liga club and $7.50 to sign with an EPL team.
If Ronaldinho does want to come Down Under, Sydney FC are tipped to give City their biggest competition, priced at $19 to get his services.
“There has been some real quality signings for Melbourne City due to their connection with Manchester City, so they are obviously the favourite Aussies team if Ronalidinho does want to play here. But given his talent, he could still cut it in some of the top leagues so he may look elsewhere,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
