Lionel Messi denies rumours to help Ronaldinho get out of jail


Barcelona Football club 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 £3.25million.

However, reports say Messi’s advisors have made it clear they will not be assisting Ronaldinho financially, even though he sympathizes with the Brazilian.Ronaldinho is being held alongside his brother Roberto in a jail on the outskirts of the Paraguayan capital Asuncion.
