London, Sept.20 (ANI): Manchester United coach Alex Ferguson has said that the teams star Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo almost joined Arsenal instead of Manchester United. The Sun quoted Fergie as saying: Arsene Wenger must have been close, he had him over at Highbury about 25 times! Gunners boss Wenger has still not got over the fact he missed out on the Portugal winger, 23, and admitted: If I was to have a player from Manchester United it would be Ronaldo because we were so close to getting him.
