United coy on Cristiano Ronaldo rumours

Manchester United chief executive David Gill refused to be drawn on rumours linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a return to Old Trafford.

The Portugal international has stated recently that he intends to see out his contract at Real Madrid, but he also stressed that he cannot say where his long-term future will lie.

When speaking of United, the 27-year-old admitted that he still holds feelings for the Red Devils, whilst Sir Alex Ferguson claimed  he would welcome the talented striker back with open arms.

But for the time being, Gill was  keen to play down the rumours linking Ronaldo with the Old Trafford outfit.

"He is a brilliant player but he is contracted for the next two-and-a-half years at Madrid," he said to Sky Sports News HD.

"We are looking forward to welcoming him back, he will get a great reception at Old Trafford in early March and that is all we have got to say."
