Brazilian star Ronaldo has again claimed Manchester City are monitoring his rehabilitation from a knee injury, as they ponder a bid for his services in January.
The former Real Madrid and Barcelona striker has long-since been linked with a move to Eastlands, although Blues boss Mark Hughes has in the past distanced himself from reports.
Eager to return to Europe once he recovers from a knee injury that curtailed his time at AC Milan, Ronaldo appears to have his heart set on Eastlands.
Brazil team-mates Robinho, Elano and Jo would certainly help him to acclimatise to life in the Premier League and it is a challenge he is keen to take up.
"I know that there is interest from Manchester City - and I am focused on my recovery to explore this," he is quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror.
His representative, Fabiano Farah added: "We want a project that will live up to the history of Ronaldo."
