Ronaldo set to stay at Old Trafford as Real eye Ribery


Manchester United go to next week's Champions League final with a firm grip on their winger. Real Madrid's attemp to confirm a deal with Bayern Munich winger Frank Ribery might confirm Ronaldo's staying at Old Trafford.

Ribery's indication to leave Bayern may lead to a exciting transfer period this season. 

Real Madrid were unable to lure Ronaldo to Santiago Barnabue and had been expected to make a big effort this season to bring him to the roster.

But Real's interest for Ribery, along with their interest in Wigan Athletics winger Antonio Valencia, indicates that their plans to bring Ronaldo from Old Trafford are likely to be shelved for another 12 months.

And it will surely end the saga for a while.

Manchester United retains Barclays Premier League


Manchester United secured Barclays Premier League for three succesive year in a row and became the first British team to win hattrick title for the 2nd time.

Manchester United now level Liverpool with 18 titles each and Sir Alex Ferguson claimed his 11th title in 17 seasons, an achievement unlikely ever to be equalled.

Manchester United started the match agaisnt Arsenal in quest for a draw on a win to clinch the title with one game remaining and succeded. It would have been more fascinating if United won the match but nevertheless they drew and won the title.

A relieved Ferguson said: 'That was the longest 90 minutes in history! It was a cautious game and there was hardly a save to make until the last five minutes. But we got there.'

Ryan Giggs agreed, 'The second half was agony to be honest,' he said. 'I'm sure it was for the fans as well. The one team you don't want to play is Arsenal as they keep the ball so well, and they came to spoil the party.'

'Win or lose, I think you should show respect,' said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger pointedly. 

'The best answer is to play better on the pitch, but when you are young, it's understandable when players are sensitive about this.'

United will now settle their mind on the upcoming Champions League Final against Barcelona and hope to clinch the 4th title on the season.

Fletcher misses Champions League Final


Darren Fletcher's hope to play in his first Champions League Final against Barcelona disapear today when UEFA's deciplinary body rejected United's attempt to overturn the red card against Arsenal in the semi final.

Manchester United submitted a written report to UEFA about the red card to overturn it as the replay showed the tackle on Fabregas was indeed played on the ball.

Manchester United decided not to apeal. A United spokesman said: "Darren is an honest player and we felt we should do what we could to try to help him become eligible for the Champions League final by initially protesting his dismissal. However, we respect Uefa's decision not to admit the protest and we will therefore not be appealing against today's ruling."

Explaining the suspensions, Uefa said: "In reaching its decision, the control and disciplinary body concluded that the protests had not been submitted within the required 24-hour deadline of a match for filing protests – as specified in the disciplinary regulations – and even if they had been admitted they would have been rejected as unfounded as there were no grounds for contesting the referee's original decisions."

Meanwhile Barcelona's Aric Abidal also remain suspended for the Final.
