Ronaldinho is currently playing in Mexico at Liga MX side Queretaro and his contract doesn’t expire until June 2016, though Bursaspor club president Recep Bulukbasi was clearly excited at the prospect of bringing the 35-year-old to the Super Lig.
He said, “We are in talks with Ronaldinho’s agent.
“We want to sign a star player to our club for the opening of our new stadium next season.
“Ronaldinho is a world star and we want to bring him to our club.
“We haven’t discussed finances yet but we will make moves to complete the transfer soon.”
The two-time World Player of the Year has struggled to win fans over in the Mexican league and largely failed to hit top gear with only three goals and three assists in his 17 games, even missing a penalty on his debut.
Bursaspor currently sit sixth in the Turkish top division, 13 points away from Champions League qualification and two points away from the Europa League places.
