Charlton: Ronaldo not on the agenda

Sir Bobby Charlton has told ESPN that the Manchester United board of directors have not discussed the possibility of re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

The Portuguese forward, who scored the winner in last week’s Champions League last sixteen second leg at Old Trafford has been linked with a return to Manchester, but United legend Charlton has rebuffed the claims, whilst declaring that the 28 year old “did go beyond just a great player for us”.

Meanwhile, reports in Portugal suggest that a deal for Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay could be completed within the next few weeks.

The 26 year old has made 39 appearances for the Primeira Liga leaders since joining from Real Madrid in 2011.
Elsewhere, Sir Alex Ferguson has pledged to send a Manchester United XI to help crisis club Dunfermline in the summer.

The United manager is keen to do all he can to help save the club, who he represented as a player between 1964 and 1967, scoring 66 goals in just 89 appearances.

Finally, a charity match between legends of Manchester United and Real Madrid has been arranged for June 2nd.

Former captain Bryan Robson and the treble winning strike partnership of Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke are among those who will turn out at Old Trafford to raise money for the MU Foundation.
