Crocked Selecao star Ronaldo will join Flamengo once he recovers from his serious injury, according to the Brazilian club. Does this signal the end of El Fenomeno's Serie A career?

Ronaldo's future in football has been uncertain for quite a while now, due to both his injury and contractual situation.

The 32-year-old severed a tendon in his knee playing for Milan against Livorno in February, which at first placed his whole career in jeopardy.

After a successful operation in Paris, it was revealed that he would be out of action for at least nine months, although a more likely return date was said to be in 2009.

Although Ronaldo's rehabilitation is said to be going well, and well ahead of schedule, his contract at Milan expired at the end of June, and the Italian club have refused to offer him a new deal until he can prove his fitness.

It now seems they have lost the player for good, as Brazilian club Flamengo, who Ronaldo has never hidden his love for, claim that they have a deal to sign the striker.

“We have a deal with the players' agent,†Flamengo President Marcio Braga told Globoesporte.

“As soon as he has recovered from the injury, we will sit around a table and complete the paperwork.

“Flamengo's medical staff are personally following his physical progress, and Ronaldo will be this club's top priority.â€

This news means that it is highly possible that Ronaldo has played his final ever game in Serie A. He wore the shirt of Inter from 1997 to 2002, and that of Milan from January 2007 to June 2008.
