Real Madrid star Ronaldo: Rooney will stay with Man Utd

Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't expect former Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney to join him at Real Madrid. Reports earlier this week suggested the Spanish giants were lining up a double swoop for the England striker Rooney and his national team boss Fabio Capello.

However, Ronaldo - who moved to the Bernabeu last summer - feels his former Red Devils team-mate will remain in Old Trafford.

He told the News of the World: "I am still friends with Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic at Manchester United.

"I think Rooney is very happy in Manchester and even if Real Madrid tried to sign him, I don't think he would want to join me here."
