Leicester City made sensational swoop for iconic footballing hero

RonaldinhoThe Leicester fans are gathered at the jukebox in The Transfer Tavern selecting some tunes and discussing reports that the club made a move for a former Brazilian international.

Mundo Deportivo is reporting that the Premier League leaders made an audacious swoop to bring Ronaldinho to the King Power Stadium during the transfer window but the 35-year-old turned down an offer from The Foxes in favour of a big money move to China.

Claudio Ranieri decided to make a move for the Brazilian superstar in attempt to take the pressure of both Riyad Mharez and Jamie Vardy- but even the lure of potentially winning the Premier League wasn’t enough to bring him to the club.

Ronaldinho is no stranger to fans of English football being remembered for an audacious free kick that caught then England keeper David Seaman unaware during the World Cup in Japan in 2002.

The Leicester fans in The Tavern are not overly concerned that Ronaldinho turned down a move to the club and feel his superstar status could have upset a few players and moral may have dipped.

Leicester fans, would Ronaldinho have assured your club Premier League success? Let us know in the comments!
