Buck: Ronaldinho not coming to Chelsea

Chelsea won't try to sign Barcelona star Ronaldinho at the end of the season according to the Premier League club's chairman.

Ronaldinho has endured a disappointing campaign with Barca and, after being left out several times by coach Frank Rijkaard, it was suggested the Brazilian was keen to leave the Nou Camp.

Chelsea are one of the few clubs who could afford the former World Player of the Year and chairman Bruce Buck admitted they had considered making a bid, before deciding to look elsewhere for new signings.

'Ronaldinho? No, I don't see it being likely that Ronaldinho will be here next year,' Buck told Sky Sports News.

'Anything was a possibility and certainly there had been rumours and discussions of that, but I don't see it happening.'

Meanwhile, Buck is convinced Frank Lampard will agree a new contract with the Blues despite negotiations being put on hold.

'We want him to stay and he has said he wants to stay,' Buck said. 'He also said he'd like to delay discussions until the summer, but I'm optimistic that we'll be able to sort something out.

'It's only because he wants to concentrate on his football. He's a wonderful player and a superb guy and we'd like to see him for the long-term at Chelsea football club.'
