The former footballer Ronaldo has reportedly been admitted to the intensive care unit of a hospital in Ibiza, after he came down with pneumonia.

Ronaldo, whose club career took in spells at Cruzeiro, PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Corinthians, is on holiday in Ibiza, where he owns a house.

"Friends, I had a very strong flu in Ibiza and I had to be hospitalised on Friday but everything is in order", the legendary Brazil forward said on Twitter.

Later that night, the Brazilian requested a transfer to the Nuestra Señora del Rosario hospital, owned by private health company Policlinica.

At the time, the Brazilian managed to handle the indisposition humorously with his trademark smile via tweet from his hospital bed saying: "Good morning to all those who began the New Year with dengue". The hospital could not immediately be reached by Reuters for comment.

Manchester United turned down chance to sign Harry Maguire for £15 million
However, the greatest buzz around a transfer was the potential deal for Leicester City and England centre back Harry Maguire . It gives us a couple of weeks to recover people and to prepare people better and to focus on the players that are available.

He is believed to have arrived in Ibiza for a summer break a few days ago.

Pneumonia is swelling of the tissue in one or both lungs and is usually caused by a bacterial infection.

He won two La Liga titles with Real, the UEFA Cup with Inter and lifted the World Cup in 1994 and 2002 with Brazil, also reaching the tournament's final in 1998.

Since retirement, however, he has battled thyroid problems and gained significant weight.
