World governing body FIFA will rule today on whether Ronaldo's US$27.6 million, world-record transfer from Barcelona to Inter Milan can go ahead.

Barcelona and Inter Milan have been in dispute for several weeks over the Brazilian.

Ronaldo will make legal history if FIFA ratify his move to Italy.

Barcelona appear resigned to losing Ronaldo; they have reportedly bid for Flamengo's Savio.
