'Brilliant' Kewell turned Man United down reveals Scholes

Things could have been very different, however, and according to United legend, Paul Scholes, Ronaldinho couldn't have been any closer to making the move to Old Trafford.

Scholes saw plenty of names come through the door during his 20-year stay with the Red Devils but has also pulled the curtain back on some others signings that United failed to get across the line.

Ronaldinho spent five years with Barcelona, scoring 94 goals across 207 appearances while helping the Catalan giants to two La Liga titles and a Champions League crown.

"I don't remember what year it was, but I thought the manager already had it", Scholes said in a podcast presented by former player Robbie Savage.

"He was brilliant. I think he ended up turning us down and going to Liverpool, which didn't really bother us that much".

I'd like to think I played a little bit like Luka Modric.

"We were away for pre-season, it was as close as announcing him and giving him a number".

Manchester United were on the verge of confirming the signing of Ronaldinho and were about to give him a shirt number - only for the Brazilian to change his mind and sign for Barcelona instead.

"We were really looking forward to it. Ronaldinho".

"We were all excited, 'Ronaldinho what a player.' I think he was coming from PSG at the time, and we thought we were all going to get to play with him - he was going to bring something special, nearly like what (Eric) Cantona brought to the team".

"Then the next minute, three days later, we are playing against him, and everyone is trying to kick him".

Scholes added: "I am not bothered". The Australian winger was part of the Liverpool side that won the Champions League in 2005.

The pair became key players for Chelsea as they won the Premier League under Jose Mourinho. We were trying to beat him because he didn't sign for us'.

While Ronaldinho signed for Barcelona at the last minute, his compatriot Kleberson signed for United on the basis that he would have another Brazilian to accompany him.
