Could World Cup star Romario be coming to Miami FC?

Updated here.

Speculation is brewing that 1994 World Cup star Romario is getting ready to sign with USL club Miami FC.

There are three big reasons that this might just happen. Miami FC recently signed '94 teammate and friend Zinho. Miami FC is owned and coach by Brazilians. Finally, Romario is 34 goals shy of reaching 1,000 career goals. At 40-years of age, he has a better chance of getting those goals against teams in the USL then in the Brazilian league.

It is also true that Romario likes Miami, so that might just be a fourth reason.

Adding to the speculation is the fact that Romario has now missed four practices in a row with his club Vasco da Gama, causing their coach to say, "He cannot be like bin Laden and disappear. We here at Vasco need him and want to talk to him before he makes any decision."

Bringing such talent to Miami would be a great move the club. It would make them a threat in the USL as well as the US Open Cup (if they are eligible).
