Melbourne: Australian soccer club Melbourne Heart have approached Brazilian striker Ronaldo over a possible stint with the A-League side, a media report said on Saturday.

"We`re in the embryonic stages at the moment," chief executive of the club Scott Munn was quoted as saying by the Herald Sun newspaper.

The 33-year-old striker, who was part of two World Cup winning teams and now plays for Corinthians in Brazil, would earn $92,660 per match if the deal materialised, the report said.

"We`re aware that his contract is nearing the end and we have had some contact and conversations with relation to Ronaldo and a possible stint with us," Munn said.
