Rumor: Ronaldinho to MLS...in 2016?

He hasn't even found a club for the rest of 2015 yet, but the rumor mill is looking ahead...

The latest news on Ronaldinho has him headed to Vasco da Gama. At least, club president Eurico Miranda is cheerfully telling ESPN Brasil that "project Ronaldinho Vasco" is "90%" complete.

Dinho inspires club presidents to say a lot of things. Queretaro's said he wasn't going anywhere. Antalyaspor's was quite confident the Brazilian would at least be discussing a move to Turkey. Ronaldinho's movements are not easy to predict, even for club presidents.

But Vasco has been linked to Dinho for a while now, and is starting to look a lot like the last club standing. Well done, Vasco.

Will the 35-year-old be retiring in Brazil? Not according to some reports. Whispers carried by the Brazilian press suggest the plan is for Vasco to serve merely as a stepping stone: the contract will be for six months and then Ronaldinho will move on - to MLS.

The rumor mill moves fast where Dinho is concerned, but keep an eye on reports regarding his next contract - specifically its duration, since that will provide some clue as to whether he really does have an eye on yet another club for next year.
