Sir Alex Ferguson does not believe Cristiano Ronaldo will ever return to Manchester United.

Nearly four years after leaving for Real Madrid in a world record £80million deal, Ronaldo will be back at Old Trafford on March 5 to try and help his current team knock his old one out of the Champions League.

It is bound to rekindle memories of the brilliance Ronaldo brought to the Premier League in his six-year stint with the Red Devils, as well as trigger thoughts about whether it ever could be revived. Ferguson has spoken optimistically about the prospect in the past - and he still won't rule it out completely. However, the Scot said: "I don't see it."
