I will not pay £3.25m to help Ronaldinho out of prison – Messi

Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has denied rumours that he will give out £3.25million to help Ronaldinho get out of jail.

Ronaldinho was arrested early this month, for allegedly entering Paraguay with a fake passport.
The 39-year-old is facing up to six months in prison.

Last week, there were rumours that Messi wants to help his former Barca team-mate, by hiring four top lawyers to take on his case, a move that would have cost him up to £3.25m.

However, according to Catalan publication Sport, Messi’s advisors have made it clear they will not be assisting Ronaldinho financially, even though he sympathises with the Brazilian.
