Ronaldinho has signed for Besiktas [De Telegraaf]
The rumours have been rife for a few days now and are today confirmed by reliable Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: Ronaldinho has signed for Besiktas.
After a stunning 2013, where Ronaldinho led Atletico Mineiro to Copa Libertadores glory, it seems the Brazilian legend is returning to Europe.
Last week it was claimed Roberto Assis, Ronaldinho’s brother and agent, had been negotiating with the Turkish side for over six months.
De Telegraaf say Ronaldinho has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with Besiktas worth between 10 and 15 million euros.
The 33-year-old Brazilian legend is set to receive a rapturous welcome by supporters of the Turkish side who have already been sharing the picture below of a Ronaldinho look-a-like in a Besiktas top.
