The Brazilian footballer is reportedly interested in buying the national rights to Playboy magazine through his 9INE marketing firm.
The softcore porn magazine is Brazil's tenth-best selling publication, and Brazil is the magazine's third-largest national market, but monthly sales have fallen hard over the past decade. Sources say Ronaldo sees the purchase as a lucrative business opportunity, and his 'midas touch' makes him just the man to bolster flagging readership.
Despite his 2011 retirement, Ronaldo still maintains endorsement deals, and owns a chain of gyms, a sports health clinic, a nightclub, and millions in real estate.
