Antalya: Legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldinho has agreed to join newly-promoted Turkish side Antalyaspor and team up with former Barcelona teammate Samuel Eto’o.
Antalyaspor president Gultekin Gencer says the club and 2005 World Player of the Year award winner Ronaldinho, 35, have agreed personal terms and the deal should be completed this week, dailymail.co.uk reported on Tuesday.
“We reached an agreement with Ronaldinho. I think within two days it’ll be made official,” he said.
“Besides Eto’o and Ronaldinho, we will make another big name signing. When it’s done, we’ll set the world on fire!”
Ronaldinho, who was part of the Brazilian team that won the 2002 FIFA World Cup, appeared in an Instagram video and said “greetings to everyone. I will be with you all in Turkey soon”.
Former A.C. Milan and Paris Saint-Germain star Ronaldinho, who cancelled his contract with Mexican side Queretaro to help push through the move, will team up with Cameroon striker Eto’o.
The pair enjoyed a successful spell together at Barcelona, winning the La Liga and King’s Cup as well as the 2006 European Champions League.
