So he's not coming to the USA?

Last time we checked in with Ronaldinho, his car was in a ditch and he was reported to be headed to the USA: either as part of Corinthians USA's 2016 US Open Cup campaign, or for a friendly tournament with former club Fluminense, or perhaps even both.

But the rumor mill grows restless if 'Dinho is left untroubled by transfer gossip for more than a few days. The latest report- attributed to Brazil's UOL Esportes and Swiss outlet Blick - suggests the Brazilian is now fielding offers from clubs in Malaysia and Switzerland.

The Swiss club or clubs has not been identified, but the reports suggest FA Pahang and perhaps Johor Darul Ta'azim FC (JDT) are behind the Malaysian offer(s).

One thing these reports have in common those preceding them is direct quotes from Ronaldinho's brother and agent, Roberto Assis. And that common thread suggests that - whether these offers are real or even realistic - 'Dinho is definitely in the market for a new club: his agent wants us to know that, as often as we need to hear it.

Best of luck with the job hunt, 'Dinho.
