Fergie: Real Ronaldo chase not over

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has again fanned the flames of Manchester United's battle with Real Madrid over Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ferguson and United made it clear during the summer they did not approve of Madrid's efforts to entice Ronaldo to the Bernabeu, and the United boss has now claimed he does not believe their pursuit is over.

This week has seen a war of words between Ferguson and Madrid president Ramon Calderon, and the United boss said: "It's possible that these are the first shots of another attempt to get him. They do it all the time. We're ready."

He added: "We have enough ammunition ready. I'm only using one gun at the moment. I'll get the gatling gun out in January!"

On the relationship between the two clubs, Ferguson added: "I don't care two monkeys about our relationship with Real Madrid to be honest with you.

"We have the player we want. They don't have the player they would like. All that is going on regarding Calderon is to do with the fact that they couldn't get Cristiano.

"Calderon promised so much that he would get the lad. Some of his comments are ridiculous. There is a complete arrogance about it all.

"There was no question of Ronaldo leaving anyway, absolutely no question."
