Manchester United have been handed two dream cup ties in the past week, facing hated rivals Leeds and City in the FA and League Cups.

With our hatred for Real Madrid growing steadily over the past few years, could we be in for meeting them in the first knock-out stages of the Champions League?

Cristiano Ronaldo hopes not!

“I don’t want to play against Manchester,” he said. “It will be a strange feeling if I play them. Mr Ferguson helped me a lot in my career. I was there six years and he taught me many things. I keep the same relationship with him. He’s a good friend of mine. I still have the same friends. I speak sometimes with Rooney, Vidic, Ferdinand, Nani, Evra, Anderson.”
