Ferdinand: Ronaldo will stay

Football Transfer Centre

Man Utd defender Rio Ferdinand believes that his team mate Cristiano Ronaldo will be staying at the club, despite persistent rumours linking the Portuguese winger with a summer exit to Real Madrid.

Ferdinand told Sky Sports: "Not really - I don't think Manchester United are noted as a selling club really.

"I saw an interview with the manager the other day and I think we only really sell players that we want to sell and I wouldn't put Ronnie in that category.

"At the end of the day he is a Man United player and long may that continue.

"I want him to be my team-mate because he is a fantastic footballer and that means we are going to be that bit more successful if we have got him in our ranks.

"As I said, I would love him to stay but I am not the man who makes the decisions at the club.
