Ronaldinho was recently released by Brazilian team Atletico Mineiro, and has been looking for a new club, so representatives from Basingstoke Town have reached out to the forward's brother who also serves as his agent, according to the Basingstoke Gazette.

If the former Brazilian national team captain accepts the offer, he could be lead the team to promotion in each of the next five seasons he could be back in soccer's top tier before he turns 40. Sound like a good plan.
