Bursaspor in talks with former Barcelona & AC Milan star Ronaldinho
Bursaspor have confirmed that they are in talks with the former Barcelona & AC Milan star Ronaldinho.
Club President Recep Bölükbaşı confirmed interest in the 35-year-old during an interview with İhlas Haber Ajansı (İHA).
“We are in talks with Ronaldinho’s agent,” Bölükbaşı told IHA.
“We want to sign a star player to our club for the opening of our new stadium next season.
“Ronaldinho is a world star and we want to bring him to our club.
“We haven’t discussed finances yet but we will make moves to complete the transfer soon.”
Ronaldinho currently plays at the Mexican club Queretaro. The 35-year-old’s contract with the Mexican club ends in June 2016.
The Brazilian signed for the club in September but has showed glimpses of the form that won him two World Player of the Year awards with Barca in 2004 and 2005.
Ronaldinho missed a penalty on his debut and has been unable to win over the fans since.
The former Brazil international has three assists and three goals in 17 games for Queretaro this season.
Bursaspor are currently in 6th place in the Turkish Super Lig with 41 points in 25 games.
