FC Barcelona legend Ronaldinho will return to his former club Fluminense in January, but only for marketing reasons, it seems.
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.
The former AC Milan star only managed seven appearances for the Brazilian club in his first spell with them.
