Hughes upbeat despite Ronaldinho blow

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes today insisted the club could have done no more to lure Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho to the Premier League.

Hughes was today coming to terms with the 28-year-old Barcelona forward's decision to head for AC Milan rather than Eastlands after a protracted chase for his signature.

He was remaining philosophical after missing out on the player, and claimed the club should be applauded for setting their sights so high.

Hughes told the Manchester Evening News: 'I think we have shown a willingness to bring Ronaldinho here and should be complimented for that.

'In the end though, it will be the player's decision where he goes.'

City owner Thaksin Shinawatra is understood to have tabled an offer in excess of the £19.8million Milan have agreed to pay Barca for Ronaldinho, with some reports suggesting he was willing to pay the South American up to a staggering £200,000 a week in wages.

However, the Italian club announced last night that they had agreed a deal in principle with their Spanish counterparts. Ronaldinho is now due in Milan today to undergo a medical before signing a three-year deal.
