Bilic on Besiktas’ €8m Ronaldinho chase: “We’d be delighted to have him at our club”
- August 1, 2013
Noise is steadily rising that Ronaldinho could be set for one final fling in Europe with Turkish side Besiktas.
Turkish media has been whipped up into a frenzy in the past 48 hours after Ahmet Nur Çebi, the vice-president of Besiktas, was spotted talking to Ronaldinho’s agent Roberto Assis in a hotel in Istanbul earlier in the week (see above).
Now rumours are swirling about that Ronaldinho will move to Beskitas in January after Club World Cup for €8m, and those rumours have been fanned on Thursday by Besiktas manager Slaven Bilic.
The former Croatian international team boss answered a question on Ronaldinho in his press conference, saying the following:
It’s still a story about the cherry [on the cake]. All I can say is that he’s a great player, he’s a world star on the pitch, off the pitch, and we’d be delighted to have him in our club.
I would love to have Ronaldinho in my squad. He might be a little older now, but I think that he still has at least two good years in him. Even at his age, he would contribute a lot to Besiktas and could help us to the next level.
