Sir Alex Ferguson has no doubt Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo misses life at Manchester United. Ronaldo has been linked with a return to Old Trafford in the summer.

Ferguson said: "The glare of publicity he gets in Madrid is different to here. The players here, I think, are quite well protected - especially in the training sessions. There are cameras everywhere at Madrid as everyone knows. I think he will miss a lot of things here [at United] but that's not stopped him progressing as a footballer. His progress has been brilliant."
