Off contract AC Milan striker Ronaldo is receiving interest from Japan.

Ronaldo expects to be available to play again before the New Year after suffering a serious knee injury last season.

Kashima Antlers have already been contact, says Sport, offering the Brazilian a contract for life - where the 31 year-old would become a club ambassador after he hung up his boots.

With Japanese fans Ronaldo mad, the former Milan striker would stand to earn a massive £7 million annually just from image rights and advertising.
