Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that he met with Sir Alex Ferguson recently but says they did not discuss the possibility of a return to Manchester United.

The Real Madrid star was in Manchester for last week's Champions League clash with Manchester City and has revealed how Ferguson came to the team hotel for a chat but made it clear that nothing regarding a touted transfer ever came up.

"I met Alex Ferguson on the day of the game, he came to our hotel in Manchester to speak with Jose Mourinho," the Portuguese ace said.

"Of course I talked to him as well. We keep in touch. It was nice to see him again.

"No. We didn't speak about that," he added when quizzed on whether or not it was about a return to Old Trafford.

"We just talked about his times with Manchester United and mine with Real Madrid. We were just happy to see each other."
