Report: Ronaldinho to play June matches for Peruvian side

Barcelona and Brazil legend Ronaldinho is set to play two exhibition games for Peru second-tier side Cienciano in June, according to the club's administrator.

The 36-year-old former Barcelona and AC Milan star has been without a contract since he played nine matches for Fluminense between July and September of 2015 after leaving Liga MX side Queretaro.

He was reported to be near a new deal with the Brazilian side, but his brother and agent, Roberto Assis, last week said the former two-time FIFA World Player of the Year now is only considering MLS or China.

Ronaldinho recently played in a special one-off game for Ecuadorian top-flight side Barcelona in a money-spinning friendly against San Martin and is reported to have agreed to play another for fifth-division Las Vegas City (United Premier Soccer League) against Miami United (National Premier Soccer League) in June.

Cienciano published a short video on their official Facebook page featuring Ronaldinho and telling fans that he will soon wear the red shirt: "I'm going to wear the shirt.. soon we are going to be together."

"It is in our plans to have Ronaldinho present for an event that will take place in June," Ludena told El Comercio newspaper. "But we have confirmed that he will play for Cienciano."

Ronaldinho won two La Liga titles and the Champions League while playing for Barcelona.
