Flamengo hope to lure Ronaldo from Real, Parreira pleased

16 March 2006 10:57

RIO DE JANEIRO, Mar 16 (SW) - Flamengo vice-president Kleber Leite confirmed he has held telephone conversations with Real Madrid striker Ronaldo in the hope of convincing him to return to Brazil. Brazil coach Alberto Parreira would be pleased by the move, telling Lance! newspaper: "It would be good for all - Ronaldo, Flamengo and the national team.

"If he wants to come to Brazil, any financial issues can be solved. Everybody would win with this transfer."

Ronaldo is almost certain to leave Real this summer. Club president Fernando Martin has promised a summer revolution, brining an end to the ‘galactico’ policy of his predecessor Florentino Perez.

The 29-year-old Brazilian, who needs three goals in this summer’s World Cup finals to become the leading scorer in the history of the event, has criticized fans for not offering him more support since his move from Inter Milan. He has failed to make it onto the pitch in two of Real’s last three matches.

Parreira added: "It would be a privilege for the fans who didn't have the chance to see Ronaldo in a Brazilian club's shirt because he was very young when he played for Cruzeiro."

Flamengo are currently 7th in the Carioca - or Rio de Janeiro - state championship.
