Former Milan midfielder Ronaldinho is believed to be close to bankruptcy, with claims he has less than €6 in the bank.
The Brazilian has been in a long legal battle with the Brazilian government over land he built on in Porto Alegre.
In 2015 it was ruled that the developments were on protected land and had to be demolished, with a fine of €187,000 for environmental damage.
According to UOL Esporte, neither Ronaldinho nor his brother have complied with the ruling, resulting in the seizure of their passports.
