Ronaldinho’s son on trial at Barcelona

Ronaldinho’s 17-year-old son, João de Assis Moreira, is training with FC Barcelona ahead of completing a possible move to the club’s U19 team.

After terminating his contract with Brazilian side Cruzeiro, the son of the ex-Blaugrana star has been in Barcelona for the last 10 days.

As reported by sports news program Sin Concesiones, Ronaldinho’s son appears to be eager to follow in his father’s footsteps and play in the famous Blaugrana jersey.

As per Mundo Deportivo, negotiations are taking place directly between club president Joan Laporta and the young star’s uncle Roberto de Assis, who was also Ronaldinho’s agent.

De Assis is currently in Barcelona with his nephew, who until now was playing for Cruzeiro’s youth teams.

João de Assis is an attacking player who can play either as a forward or an attacking midfielder. While he is right-footed, he can play with both feet, and has been described as a skillful player.

The Brazilian teenager hopes to continue his development at the club where his father became a legend.
