NEW Man City manager Mark Hughes has backed the club's ambitious bid to sign Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho.

Executive chairman Garry Cook has already secured a club record deal to bring the Barcelona star's young countryman Jo to Eastlands, and now their sights are set even higher.

“Ronaldinho is one of the greatest players that has ever played and we are committed to bringing the best players to this football club," said Cook.

"You can never guarantee anything in football but Mark Hughes would like to see Ronaldinho here, I would like to see him here and I know the fans would like to see him here as well.'
