Ronaldinho in talks with Turkish outfit over transfer

Published Add your comment

Ronaldinho could be on his way back to Europe after he was seemingly snapped holding talks with officials from Turkish club Besiktas.

The Brazilian icon went back to Brazil to join Flamengo in 2010, before heading to Atletico Mineiro, with whom he won the Copa Libertadores last season.

The 33-year-old recently revealed that he could be on his way back to European football, and would love to end his career with former club Paris Saint-Germain.

However according to reports in Turkey he could be on his way to Besiktas, who have flown officials out to Brazil to open talks over a potential deal.

According to Vatan, Besiktas are willing to offer €3 million-per-season to secure the signature of the former Barcelona legend.

Besiktas currently have two Brazilians amongst their ranks, but countryman Juninho believes the Parc des Prince is the perfect place for him to strut his stuff.

The former Lyon man also believes that Ronaldinho is in better shape than David Beckham when he completed his loan move to the Ligue 1 giants last term.

"I think that Ronaldinho is in much better shape than Beckham was when he signed for PSG last season," he said to RMC.

"I saw him play in the Brazilian league and the Copa Libertadores. In some matches, you still can see the real Ronaldinho but I do not know how PSG would respond because they have a full complement [of players] and are candidates for the Champions League."
