Corinthians Get "El Fenomeno"

Ronaldo has been out of action ever since he severed a tendon in his knee playing for Milan against Livorno in February.

After undergoing a successful operation, it was estimated that he would be out of action for at least nine months, but there were fears in many quarters that the 32-year-old may never return to the field again.

Ronaldo’s rehabilitation is said to be going well, and there have been reports that he could be fit again soon.

El Fenomeno has been linked with a host of clubs, including Flamengo, Manchester City, Siena, and even his last club, Milan. However, over the past few days it emerged that Corinthians had entered the race to sign the 2002 World Cup winner.

Having just won promotion back up to the top flight, Corinthians are looking to strengthen ahead of the next Brasilerao, and have closed the deal for a one-year contract for Ronaldo.

The transfer has been confirmed by Corinthians' general manager Antonio Carlos, who has stated: "It is all true, the contract was signed. President Andres Sanchez met with Ronaldo last week."

Ronaldo, who signs on a free transfer due to his unattached status, has not played in his Brazilian homeland since leaving first club Cruzeiro for PSV Eindhoven of Holland back in 1994.
