The arrival of Ronaldinho to MLS could have generated a revolution in the league but it did not happen and the entire American public left wanted to see the former FC Barcelona striker. Ronaldinho played for the best teams like FC Barcelona or PSG, but he also played for Queretaro of Liga MX, which made him think that he could play for any team that was willing to pay him the money he asked for.

The MLS is constantly growing but when New York Red Bulls tried to counter it in 2014 it was not as enthusiastic or important as it is now. Although there were big stars playing in the MLS like Thierry Henry or Tim Cahill, it was not the same league compared to today.

At that time, New York Red Bulls was one of the teams with the largest wallet and that is why they could afford to hire Ronaldinho but unfortunately it did not happen. Ronaldinho would have faced in the New York classic against David Villa and Frank Lampard, players from New York City FC.

Finally that year, Ronaldinho decided to go to Liga MX and played for Queretaro. According to various media, the Liga MX team offeredRonaldinho a great financial contract and some freedoms to play for them. One of the clauses of the contract was that Ronaldinho could party at least twice a week. That in the New York Red Bulls they couldn't afford it and that's why he didn't make it to MLS.

All teams where Ronaldinho played:

Ronaldinho is remembered for his time at FC Barcelona as he won all the tournaments he played at least once and together with Lionel Messi they made one of the best pairs in history. The other teams where Ronaldinho played were: Gremio, PSG, AC Milan, Flamengo, Atletico Mineiro, Queretaro and Fluminense.
