Atletico Mineiro have announced that former World Player of the Year, Ronaldinho has left the club in mutual consent.
And, with clubs like PSG, Barcelona and AC Milan under his belt, the 34 year old says he is still not ready to retire yet.
Interest in Ronaldinho
The Daily Express claim that QPR are set to make an outstanding swoop for the former Champions League winner to join fellow Brazilian Julio Cesar, already on QPR’s pay role.
QPR will have to fight it out with Frank Lampard and David Villa’s New York City as well as Boca Juniors and Besiktas, who are all reported to be very interested in signing the Brazilian trickster. Ronaldinho’s agent who is also his brother has stated that a decision will be made on the Samba star’s future very soon.
After achieving promotion last season, QPR will need to strengthen their team for the upcoming season if they are to stay safe from relegation and push higher up the table.
Having won La Liga twice, the UEFA Champions league, and Serie A, Ronaldinho also has a bunch of personal honours to offer including Ballon d’Or (2005), FIFA World Player of the Year (2004, 2005) and the Golden Foot award (2009).
However, with age, the midfield maestro’s game has slowed down a bit more than before and with the end to end fast paced excitement of the Premier League, will he be able to fit in on a cold, rainy night playing away in the north of England?
If Harry Redknapp manages to secure this exciting signing it will be intriguing to watch how he slots into the English Premier League and how gets on along the likes of Joey Barton and Charlie Austin.
