Fergie believes Ronaldo will choose ManU over Real MadridJune 3rd, 2008 - 1:29 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 3 (ANI): Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson is expecting ace Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo to confirm that he is staying at Old Trafford.
He insisted that there is no way his star player will be signing for Real Madrid, and added that Ronaldo would not be allowed to leave even if he wanted to go.
Im very confident about that. Its a game Real Madrid play all the time. In the past theyve done it with David Beckham, theyve done it with Van Nistelrooy, theyve done it with my fitness coach last summer so were used to it, he said.
I am more than confident Cristiano will be with us next year. The Glazer family will not be messed about in this situation. We want Cristiano to stay for a long, long time. He is on a fantastic contract and quite rightly so hes the best player in the world, The Sun quoted Ferguson, as saying.
But Real president Ramon Calderon has refused to rule out a bid for the United winger.
We would love to have Cristiano or any of the worlds great players here, Calderon said. (ANI)
