Legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldo has agreed to join Sao Paulo-based Corinthians on a one-year contract.

Fabiano Farah, the agent of the former AC Milan forward, confirmed an agreement had been reached with the club on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old, who had previously been linked with Manchester City, has been training at Flamengo to build his fitness after recovering from a serious knee injury suffered last February.

"We've reached a verbal agreement for Ronaldo to play there (Corinthians)," said Farah, who had previously reported that the player had attracted interest from three other Premier League clubs apart from City.
Negotiations

A statement on the club's official website added: "The Board of Sport Club Corinthians Paulista are negotiating the signing of forward Ronaldo Nazario, 'O Fenomeno' (as he is nicknamed).

"All the details are being sorted out by the president Andres Sanchez, the director of football Mario Gobbi Filho and the director of marketing Luis Paulo Rosenberg.

"In the upcoming hours, the parties should finish the negotiation and set a date to unveil the player."

It now looks to be only a matter of time before the move is complete, however, Gobbi Filho told Terra.com that Ronaldo will sign a one-year contract with the Sao Paulo club.

Option

"The only thing I can say in advance is that he has been hired for one year, with an option of one more," he said.

"The formal event to unveil him may be on Friday. The contract will be signed shortly.

"This is a very big marketing movement. It involves companies. It is not so simple."

Rosenberg told Lancenet.com: "This is more a marketing agreement than a player signing. That is why I am taking part in this. It will be a very original and profitable business."

Ronaldo ruptured a tendon in his left knee in a Serie A game for Milan against Livorno in February and later left the Italian club.

Corinthians are one of Brazil's biggest clubs and have just won promotion back to the first division at the first attempt.

How many pies have they agreed to pay him? :D

Ronaldo is one of the all-time great strikers and he will be welcomed back to Brazil with open arms. I'm a little disappointed he won't be moving to Man City because I would have liked to see him play in the Prem but tbh I don't think he would have been fit enough.

He's getting paid in ciggys..:p

Ronaldo could have been the best player ever even in the avrage football fans eyes if he had better agents and advicers. He's most of the time been at the wrong place at the wrong time in each team he's been to.

He should be applauded for finding the motivation to keep on playing football. He's already filthy rich, he's won every single award & trophy a footballer can possibly ever win. There isn't really anything left for him to achieve in the game.

One of my all time favourite players. One of the greatest strikers of all time, and the best one i ever saw.
