Brazilian star Ronaldo looks set to resume his football career with Brazilian giants Corinthians, who are back in the first division in 2009. The 32-year-old striker has been out of action since picking up another career-threatening knee injury in February while playing for former club AC Milan.

Ronaldo has reportedly been working hard for the past few months in a bid to regain fitness, after putting on the kilos in the wake of his left knee injury. Corinthians said the former two-time European footballer of the year and three-time FIFA player of the year was "only hours from signing a deal."

Ronaldo, who won the FIFA World Cup™ with Brazil in 1994 and 2002, suffered the serious knee injury in February only months before his contract with AC Milan came to an end. He has played since, in a match organised by the United Nations in Morocco in mid-November, but was only on the pitch 22 minutes.

Corinthians are one of Brazil's biggest clubs and have in the past included top players such as Deco, now of Chelsea, Manchester United's Carlos Tevez and current Brazil keeper Dida of AC Milan.

    That's more like it. I was quite astonished to hear him bound for all sorts of big clubs and I thought what are they thinking. No doubt he was one of the best strikers in the world once upon a time but I feel he has no one to blame but himself for the shape that he's in right now. I don't think he's suffering from any disease that would make him balloon up. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
