Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has stated that the transfer saga involving Cristiano Ronaldo is "closed" and the winger will remain at the club.

The Portugal international is under contract at Old Trafford until 2012 but has been publicly courted by Spanish giants Real Madrid and the player appeared to be keen on a move.

Ferguson though insists that Ronaldo, who underwent ankle surgery earlier this summer and is not expected to return to action until October, will stay at Old Trafford. He said on Sky Sports News: "The matter is closed now. He (Ronaldo) is a Manchester United player - it´s finished. He´ll be playing here next season believe me. It´s finished."
