How does God go about putting his footsteps in the footsteps of his father when his name is Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, known as Ronaldinho?
However, this is the challenge that Joao Mendes, 17, son of the former player of PSG (2001-2003), FC Barcelona (2003-2008) or AC Milan (2000 - 2011), as well as of course the Seleçao (97 caps 33 goals), winner of the 2002 World Cup.
According to his father who announced it this Tuesday morning on Catalan radio, RAC1, Ronaldinho junior is well on the way to joining FC Barcelona.

Passed by the PSG Academy in Brazil, then trained then at the Brazilian club of Cruzeiro, Ronaldinho son, trained at Cruzeiro, terminated his contract with the latter club a year ago.
The offspring, on trial at Barça for a few weeks, is very close to signing up with Barça.
Interviewed in the program “Tu Diràs” on the Spanish channel RAC1, the former Brazilian international was affirmative about the arrival of his boy in Catalonia.
“Yes, it happens now, replied the former Parisian, ambassador of the Catalan club since 2017, to a question relating to his arrival.
With his arrival, I will be more present than ever.
The son, who looks a lot like his father physically, holds Brazilian and Spanish passports, like Ronaldinho senior.
It now remains for him to finalize the signature, to make his mark, and above all to begin to assume the legacy of his brilliant and whimsical dad.
