Ronaldinho, one of the most enjoyable footballers in recent times, has been without a club ever since he and Fluminense mutually agreed to terminate his contract a few months ago.
But he and Fluminense are teaming up for one last ride, traveling to the United States for a friendly tournament in Florida called, appropriately, the Florida Cup.
"We are going to Orlando for the Florida Cup, and as a matter of marketing and brand expansion, Ronaldinho will play for us," Fluminense president Peter Siemsen said on Radio Tupi.
It's always nice when you can just call up one of the best players ever and ask him to come play with you.
