Cruzeiro faces a very serious financial crisis and Ronaldo will disburse 400 million reais (about 72.7 million dollars) for 90 percent of the shares of the entity, now converted into a commercial corporation.
Ronaldo, who is also the majority shareholder of Spanish Valladolid, has already made some controversial decisions to face this situation and begin to put the finances of the club in order, whose debts are estimated to exceed 300 million dollars.
The first of these was the dismissal of coach Wanderlei Luxembourg, who had directed him in the Brazilian team and Real Madrid and had been in charge of Cruzeiro since the middle of last year, when he arrived with the mission of taking the club back to the First Division, but was unsuccessful.
