Former Real Madrid and FC Barcelona striker Ronaldo Nazario is reportedly close to buying a club in Spain’s LaLiga.
According to Cadena Ser’s El Larguero programme, the Brazil legend is in advanced talks to buy newly-promoted Real Valladolid for €30 million (R497 million).
The 41-year-old would replace the club’s current president Carlos Suarez, who would reportedly remain on the board.
Valladolid’s ex-president Jose Moro was a former partner of Ronaldo’s in the wine industry, while the Brazilian himself admitted earlier this year that he planned to buy a club in either England or Spain.
Valladolid were promoted to LaLiga after five years without top-flight football, drawing their first game back with Girona before losing to FC Barcelona this past weekend.
