A return to European football would be an exciting move for many neutral fans, as Ronaldinho remains one of the biggest names in world football after his immense success at Barcelona between 2003 and 2008.

The Brazilian was twice voted the FIFA World Player of the Year during his time at the Nou Camp, when he helped the team win two La Liga titles and the Champions League, and captured the imagination of football fans worldwide with his wonderful flair and ability.

It is not yet clear if the move will go through, but Besiktas vice-president Ahmet Nur Ceb has said: “We have made an offer for Ronaldinho. We are now awaiting his answer.”
