Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo says he'll stay at Manchester United next season.

Ronaldo has been chased by Spanish giants Real Madrid since virtually the end of last season and the young Portuguese player has helped fuel speculation he may move by saying he was keeping his options open.

However after discussing the situation with Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, Ronaldo has announced he will remain at Old Trafford for at least one more season.

Ronaldo will miss the start of the English season after undergoing surgery on his ankle.
