Rio De Janeiro, June 23 (IANS) Vasco da Gama are close to signing two-time FIFA World Player of the Year Ronaldinho, the Brazilian club said on Tuesday.
Ronaldinho is a free agent after ending his contract with Mexico’s Queretaro by mutual consent on Saturday, Xinhua news agency reported.
Vasco said on Twitter that the 35-year-old had told the club’s president Eurico Miranda that he is willing to sign a contract with the four-time Brazilian Serie A champions.
“We are preparing a project that is quite advanced. I would say it’s about 90 percent [complete],” Miranda said on the social media platform. “Now we are working to make it viable.”
Ronaldinho, who scored eight goals in 25 matches for Queretaro after joining the Liga MX club last September, has also been linked with a move to Turkish outfit Antalyaspor.
