​Believe it or not, Brazilian legend Ronaldinho isn't retired, despite not having played since he left Fluminese nearing the end of 2015.

And according to ​Dreamteam FC, the player is in talks with Uruguayan outfit Club Nacional de Football. There were talks of the player joining Chapecoense as a kind gesture after the club's tragedy last year, but nothing ever came of it. 


Speaking to Radio 1010 on Monday, Nacional's president Jose Luis Roridguez revealed that the club and player had been locked in discussion for nearly three weeks.

“We are trying, even though it’s difficult. We have been in talks for the past 20 days,” he explained.

“We are trying to attract sponsors to make it feasible.

“Despite having played only a handful of friendly matches in the past 15 months, Ronaldinho can still contribute on the pitch.”

Ronaldinho has had a glittering career, representing the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and AC Milan. The midfielder won two La Liga titles with Barcelona, as well as the Champions League, and captured a League title with Milan in Italy as well.

The 36-year-old also won the World Cup, Copa America and Confederations Cup with Brazil, and is also a Ballon d'Or winner, having claimed the accolade in 2005.

It would be nice to see him take the field again, even at 36. He has shown that he can still light it up during friendlies and charity matches, so him signing for another club would certainly present major intrigue.
