Real Ronaldo talk is nonsense

05/01/2007 12:52, Report by Ben Hibbs

Sir Alex Ferguson has sternly refuted reports from Spain that Real Madrid have, or are poised to, bid for United's in-form Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 21-year-old has been an integral part of the United team this season and the Reds boss was quick to quell any talk of a move involving one of European football's finest talents.

"It's nonsense," he told reporters on Friday. "Firstly, I can tell you they have not made any offer. And, secondly, it's not even an issue for us, so it's not worth talking about."

There has seemingly been a change in the willingness of Bayern Munich to allow Owen Hargreaves to leave for Old Trafford. However, the United boss admitted there have been no developments in negotiations with the Bundesliga club, saying: "There is nothing to report at the moment."

The Reds have remained coy about the possibility of bringing in players during the transfer window. United chief executive David Gill has highlighted the fact that the Reds normally do big business in the summer months. But Sir Alex hasn't ruled out bringing players in.

"I've recalled one or two young players that have been out on loan," he added, "and we may sign somebody else in January. Who knows? We may make a couple of signings. But I do think we have the squad to handle the games coming up."
