Transfer rumour: Out of contract Ronaldinho wanted by EPL clubs?

The Brazilian superstar thinks he is not yet finished, four more years of playing time left inside him as several clubs around the world wants to enjoy his service.

The 35-year-old Brazilian will appear for Fluminense in an exhibition tournament organised in America honouring a clause written into his contract when he joined the club in July at the end of this month before joining some other club on a permanent contract in February.

And now his agent, brother Roberto has confirmed there is plenty of interest left in the former Barcelona and PSG attacker, including from England.

He said in an interview: “I have had more than one call from England.

“My brother is a competitor. He loves to win: that is what people do not realise about him. He still wants to play. He has never had serious injuries; his body is in perfect condition.

“I think he has three or four years left to him, maybe more.”

Roberto further said: “It is not about money. He just wants to play. That is when I see him at his happiest.”

Ronaldinho earlier hinted that he could continue his career in Major League Soccer, a perfect place for veteran stars to enjoy the last chapter of their long career, the Brazilian also said, a decision on his future will be made within few weeks. He is right now a free agent after leaving Fluminense by mutual consent last October. The 35-year-old World Cup winner also attracted interest from Malaysian club Pahang FA along with a club from Switzerland.

However it’s still not clear which English clubs are interested to sign the forward but it is understood no club in the top half of the Premier League will want him.

Signing Ronaldinho has eventually proved a good commercial deal for clubs like Mexican outfit Queretaro and Fluminense in his own country Brazil as shirt and tickets sales reportedly flourished following his arrival.

But the raw pace of the game in English football may become a stumbling block and Ronaldinho’s brother also admits an outing in either Asia or America is more likely at this stage.
