Man Utd boss Ferguson insists Akinfeev not on shopping list

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled out a move for CSKA Moscow goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev.

Fergie spoke highly of Akinfeev, however, after last night's 3-3 draw at Old Trafford.

Ferguson said: "It is only rumour. We are not showing any interest in him (Akinfeev). We are happy with our goalkeeping situation at the moment and wouldn't be looking for another one.

"We wouldn't be interested, but I have to say he is a fantastic goalkeeper.

"He is athletic, with a powerful build, and his distribution his good.

"He really saved CSKA from a big defeat against us. He made one very good save in the first half and four I think in the second half. He was outstanding."
