The football destinations of Ronaldinho are narrowing down after Palmeiras announced that a deal could never be made involving the former Athletic Mineiro who is now a free agent. The 34 year old midfielder is ongoing talks and rumors have been stirring up linking the experienced player with a number of local Brazilian clubs. Palmeiras is believed to have launched a series of offers for Ronaldinho but the player rejected them and the future of Ronaldinho is once more unclear.
The MLS is a possible place where Ronaldinho can end up and this is something that is being done on a more frequent basis as well-known experienced players decide to make a move into a league where the pressure of playing is not as high compared to others around the world.
The New York Red Bulls is a team that has recently been linked with Ronaldinho but according to the sporting director of the club, Andy Roxburgh there have not been any contacts or approaches made by the player.
“Nobody has ever approached us. We haven’t been approached by anybody mentioning Ronaldinho. All I’m saying is this, as the sporting director of this club, and I can speak also on behalf of my other colleagues in the business, we have not been approached about him. Nobody has offered us Ronaldinho. No one has said ‘How much money?’
“I saw his name, but I’ve never talked to Ronaldinho or his people or made any offers. And the answer is we wouldn’t be doing it anyway. It’s not a matter of did we or didn’t we? Or who spoke to him or who didn’t speak to him? A great player by the way, fantastic player by the way. He’s not for here.”
The official of the New York Red Bulls, Andy Roxburgh said that there has been no communications made between the Brazilian player and the club but a transfer could happen if the demands by the club and by Ronaldinho are met.
