The 97-cap midfield star left Atletico Mineiro in his homeland at the end of the previous season and has apparently rejected an offer from the English non-league side Basingstoke Town in order to sign for the Roosters.

Having been without a club since July, the 34-year-old had taken the time out to choose his next club carefully, and will now pen a two-year deal in central Mexico.

“I chose Mexico for the affection I have always received here. I am very motivated to represent Queretaro,” declared Ronaldinho, via Twitter.

He heads to Mexico’s Liga MX with his new club sitting eighth in the Apertura, after seven games of the domestic summer season.

Should they end the season strongly they will be eligible to partake in the CONCACAF Champions League, which will give him the opportunity to perform an outstanding treble, having already stowed the Champions League and the Copa Libertadores in his locked over a long and successful career.

Ronaldinho had been offered the chance to turn out for non-league Basingstoke Town, though he had not acknowledged the offer before joining Queretaro.
