He really is finished, just like Robinho, im glad we dont have those two on our books. Kaka might have some left in the tank, very bad purchases of Orlando. They only went for names not football ability what so ever.
I'd love for a dedicated Ronaldinho to play for NYCFC, but it's naive to think that that's what we'd get, unfortunately. NYC would get to him. The nightlife etc....too tempting. He's one of my favorite players ever and it goes without saying that he's one of the best to ever grace a pitch but I see him more as a possible liability to a new franchise such as ours that has to build chemistry from scratch.
just to throw what I know, and as I saw Boca Juniors come up in that article:
No there is not enough money to pay for Dinho in Boca juniors. unless he's willing to take a huge pay cut to play in a legendary stadium
As far as I can tell that is a rehashed story of a rehashed story. They may very well be in talks but the sources used there are fairly old (of course, "old" is relative in this scenario).
After thinking it over—and reading comments in response to my original question in the other thread—I do not want Ronaldinho at NYCFC. He may still have something to offer but I believe the ROI from such an investment of wages and resources would be ultimately low.
