Ronaldinho: the greatest player Manchester United never had? Quite possibly. And, even at the age of 33, the Premier League champions would surely love to be able to count the Brazilian legend among their esteemed number.

United came agonisingly close to clinching a deal for Ronaldinho over a decade ago but he eventually joined Barcelona from Paris Saint-Germain, and was able to establish himself as the world's best player during his time at the Camp Nou.

At the age of only 30 Ronaldinho resisted the opportunity to stay among Europe's elite and instead returned to his native Brazil, initially with Flamengo and then onto Atlético Mineiro, and his incomparable talents remain intact almost three years on.

He was able to prove that he's still got it on Wednesday night as he found the net with a wonderful free-kick - his second in little over a week - during Atlético Mineiro's defeat against Casablanca.

The set-piece was almost Roberto Carlos-esque as it started outside the post and bent into the net in mind-boggling fashion. Take a look in the video above.
