Fergie Slams Ronaldo Rumours

Last updated : 06 January 2008 By Sam
Media reports have been suggesting that the United striker could be on his way to the Primera Liga side in the summer.

"I anticipated this," Fergie told the official United website.

"The thing about this story is that it has been claimed that David Gill has been speaking to Real Madrid. That is a complete lie.

"We have never spoken to them. The story depends on agents and their imaginations.

"At best it's mischievous, but I just dismiss it because it's nonsense.

"But, who wouldn't be interested in Ronaldo? That's why we bought him."
