Ronaldinho is set to come out of retirement to play for Diego Maradona's Gimnasia once he has finished his house arrest.
The 40-year-old has not played since 2015 after retiring with Brazilian club Fluminense.
But according to Argentina's version of Marca, the ex-Barcelona and AC Milan legend is considering a remarkable comeback.
Ronaldinho is said to have told Maradona that he wants to play for his Argentinean side.
But first the World Cup winner awaits a trial after being accused of trying to enter Paraguay with a fake passport.
The former playmaker spent 32 days behind bars after he was arrested but is now staying at the four-star Hotel Palmaroga in the Paraguayan capital Asuncoin.
During an interview with Mundo Deportivo, the Brazilian icon lifted the lid on his life while under house arrest.
He said: “Here at the Palmaroga Hotel we have excellent treatment.
“We have everything well ordered, we are very calm and they do anything to pass time in the most pleasant way possible.
“It has been 60 long days.
“People in their homes must imagine what it must be like not being to do what you are used to.
“I think that is something will remain forever to all us after living this complicated experience.”
