(Football) Ronaldinho on Boca Juniors radar
(07-24 12:17)

Argentine giants Boca Juniors are reportedly eyeing a move for two-time FIFA World Player of the Year Ronaldinho.
The Buenos Aires outfit sees the 34-year-old as an ideal replacement for Juan Roman Riquelme, who departed the club last week to sign with Argentinos Juniors, Brazilian news portal Futnet reported.
Ronaldinho has endured a frustrating 2014, with poor form and injuries restricting him to just two matches for Atletico Mineiro in Brazil's Serie A.
News of the possible transfer, initially broken on Argentine television, quickly became a hot topic on Twitter among fans in Brazil and Argentina on Thursday.
Ronaldinho joined Atletico Mineiro in 2012 from their Brazilian rivals Flamengo. He has also represented AC Milan, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Gremio. --Xinhua
