Blackburn chasing Ronaldinho and Beckham

January 04, 2011 20:46 IST

Blackburn Rovers have made an offer for AC Milan forward Ronaldinho and are also chasing former England captain David Beckham, the Indian owners of the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

"Yes, we have made an offer to Ronaldinho but it is still in the early stage," Venkateshwara Rao, joint managing director of Indian poultry giant Venky's, told Reuters.

"Similarly, we have made an effort to get Beckham on loan but again, nothing has come out of it so far."

Beckham, who has asked Los Angeles Galaxy if he can make an off-season loan move, has been linked more strongly with Tottenham Hotspur although other Premier League clubs have also expressed an interest.
