Roma made shock move for Ronaldo

The Giallorossi tried to bring in a new striker all summer and had several targets, including Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Globoesporte claims Ronaldo turned down offers from Roma, Tottenham and Blackburn Rovers so he could play in the Copa Libertadores for Corinthians.

Ronaldo’s contract expires in December 2010, so a move to Roma could happen later in the season.
