Brazilian star Ronaldinho has an offer on the table from Basingstoke Town, of the English Conference South.
Ronaldinho, 34, and his agent and brother Roberto De Assis have been offered a contract at The Soccer AM Stadium, with the English minnows hopeful their audacious bid comes off.
Simon Hood, Basingstoke Town's marketing director, said: "Discussions have been had, and there is an offer on the table. Now it is up to Ronaldinho to decide whether he wants to take us up on it. He is on a free transfer and if he wants to get into English football, I cannot think of a better way to do that than by signing for Basingstoke Town."
