Ronaldo set to buy football club, Real Valladolid for 30 million euros
The ownership of Real Valladolid is set to change hands as Ronaldo Nazario edges closer to a takeover.
On August 23, Radio MARCA’s T4 programme revealed that the Brazilian was in advanced talks to become the club’s majority shareholder.
This Monday, the El Larguero show reported that a figure of 30 million euros will be agreed and that Ronaldo will become club president, with Carlos Suarez continuing but in a new role of chief executive.
Any successful deal would see an end to months of negotiations for the club, which saw an agreement with Mexican businessman Ernesto Tinajero collapse after Suarez broke the signed pre-contract.
A complex shareholder dispute between the ex president and businessmen Jose Moro and Jose Luis Losada, vice-presidents last season, complicated the entire operation.
