Former Brazilian world soccer sensation, Ronaldinho, is at the moment in a state of bankruptcy, where banks in Spain has disclosed that, he has only £5 in his bank account.

The disclosure came following a heavy fine that was slammed on the former soccer star for an illegal construction of a house in a protected area. He has been quoted to be owing £1.75million,.

The Brazil legend, 38, was fined heavily for illegal construction in a protected area in his home country, along with his brother Roberto Assis.

Despite remortgaging the property, Ronaldinho is said to be unable to pay his debt due to the sky-high interest rate.

Reports in Spain now claim the former Barcelona ace has just £5.24 left in his bank account.

As a result of that, a judge in Brazil has ordered Ronaldinho has his passport seized in a bid to ensure he doesn’t flee the country.

The former AC Milan, and Paris Saint-Germain forward has been in China and Japan in recent weeks on endorsement campaigns.

But now the 97-cap international looks set for a long stint in his native Brazil with no passport to his name.

The iconic playmaker is due to take part in The Game of Champions in Frankfurt, Germany on November 17.

A “Ronaldinho and friends” XI is set to play the “Rene Adler All-Stars” in a charity game to help disadvantaged children.

But unless the ex-Barca whiz can somehow find £1.75m, his trip to Europe looks to be in jeopardy.
