The 33-year-old moves to the BJK İnönü Stadium this winter on a two-and-a-half year deal – confirmed today by Dutch newspaper ‘De Telegraaf‘ – which will earn him between €10-€15m.

With the 2014 World Cup just round the corner, this move to Turkey seems like a ploy to put himself firmly in contention for Luiz Felipe Scolari’s star-studded Brazil squad.

Named the 2013 South American Player of the Year by Uruguayan newspaper El Pais, the former two-time World Player of the Year bagged a sensational 17 goals and 11 assists in the 36 games last year.

His exploits led his now former side Atlético Mineiro to the 2013 Copa Libertadores, and if he keep up his terrific form, this move to Turkey could well put him on the plane back to Brazil for the summer Finals.

What do you think? Can Ronaldinho make it to the World Cup in Brazil? Let me know in the comments below…

  1. I think that ronaldinho will surely make it to the 2014 world cup in brazil. Evidance to that is his excellent performances in recent times, and strongly believed that if he continues with his classical form, definitely he will go

  2. I think the Brazillians need ronaldinho’s expernce to win the World Cup. He performd very well in the Club World Cup scorng a very good free kick.. So if the coach would select him i’d be happy..

  3. Ronaldinho should play in the World Cup simply because he is the best player in the world even better than the great Cristian Ronaldo and far better than Lionel Messi. It would be a tragic mistake for Brazil, if Ronaldinho would not be among their first line squad in World Cup 2014 and I do not think that Phillipe Scolari is a kind of coach who would leave out the world’s best player out of his squad.
