Fergie expects another Real Ronaldo chase

Sir Alex Ferguson expects Real Madrid to make another move for Cristiano Ronaldo when the transfer window reopens, but is confident Manchester United are in a good position to retain the winger.

Real's lengthy and highly public pursuit of the Portugal international dominated the summer transfer talk before Ronaldo pledged his immediate future to United while saying that Real Madrid remain a "dream"..

But, with the 23-year-old now back in first-team contention after an operation on an ankle, Ferguson is ready and waiting for the Primera Liga side to renew their interest.

"Real Madrid's interest in Cristiano will continue," Ferguson told the Daily Express.

"They didn't sign anyone in the summer. The coach Bernd Schuster went on holiday when they would not sign David Villa. He will be champing at the bit to get a big player in the summer so it's all going to happen again.

"Don't worry, it will all happen again in January."

Ferguson insists United will stick to their guns and keep Ronaldo.

"He has four years left on his contract," he added. "We are in the right position to dismiss Real Madrid."
