Ronaldinho's Next Move Revealed?

FC Barcelona legend Ronaldinho will return to his former club Fluminense in January, but only for marketing reasons, it seems.

Ronaldinho Names His Toughest Opponent

The 35-year-old joined the club in July this year, but left the Brazilian side by mutual consent back in September, just three months later.

The former Selecao star is officially a free agent, but will now join Fluminense on a short-term deal to play for them against Shakhtar Donetsk and International in 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 told Radio Tupi.

"Ronaldinho and Fluminense maintain a great respect for each other. And for the American market, he is a very attractive brand of player."

It is unknown whether Ronaldinho will stay with the Brazilian club beyond the Florida Cup or join another new team in January.

Ronaldinho: Why I Left Barca

The former AC Milan star only managed seven appearances for the Brazilian club in his first spell with them.
