Sir Alex Ferguson and Cristiano Ronaldo maintain a good relationship

"The manager is Jose Mourinho and his relationship at the end with him was difficult, it wasn't good," Lowe said on ESPN FC.
"If you put those two together, they've got a common goal, they're both trying to win things, they've both extremely competitive men and extremely professional men in very, very many ways, then perhaps it would work.

Saturday 17 June
22:48: Express Sport understands West Ham are still in the market for a central defender which could prove to be some salvation to Manchester United's Chris Smalling. 
Smalling is set to be allowed by United to leave after the signing of Victor Lindelof pushed him down pecking order.
Everton are also showing some interest in him if they fail to sign Keane while West Brom and Newcastle are being kept in touch with developments as well.
21:45: Michael Essien has suggested Romelu Lukaku could yet snub a return to Chelsea in favour of Manchester United.
The Blues are looking to secure a mega-money move for the Everton hitman, but United remain in the race.
"Yes why not?" Essien told Manchester Evening News when asked if Lukaku and Jose Mourinho could work together again.
"If Jose wants him and he wants to play for Jose then yes they can work together.
"They both have to want to work with each other for that to happen and if the desire is there then, yes, they can work together."
20:48: Stan Collymore has urged Manchester United to jump at the prospect of re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, with the superstar set to quit Spain.
“If there is even a glimmer of a chance that Manchester United could get Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid for around the £150million mark this summer they’d be foolish to let the opportunity pass,” Collymore wrote in his column for The Mirror.
“He’s 32 years old but super-motivated and United could probably get two very good years out of him at least, plus a huge chunk of that sum back given the commercial juggernaut at Old Trafford.
“They are doing that with Paul Pogba and could roll out the same sort of ‘He’s coming home’ fanfare for Ronaldo to get things going — and the cash tills ringing — on that front.
“I could easily see the Portuguese going back to his old stamping ground and, from a purely footballing perspective, it makes absolute sense.”
18:42: Another newspaper believe they have worked out how much Cristiano Ronaldo will cost.
Manchester United would have to pay a bewildering £175m to sign the Portugal ace, say Marca.
United are said to be interested in the striker, who wants to leave Real Madrid.
But Spanish newspaper Marca claim Real would expect €200m (£175m) for their star man - a fee United are unlikely to match for a 32-year-old.
16:51: Manchester United could be about to blow their transfer budget on Cristiano Ronaldo and Alavaro Morata.
Both men are available their summer, with Ronaldo telling Real Madrid he wants to leave the club.
United have been working on a deal for Morata for some time.
And The Sun claim a double deal is not out of the question.
However, in order to get it done it would have to include David De Gea.
They claim a £180million offer PLUS De Gea would bring Real to the table.

Man Utd a possibility for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo

15:55: Manchester United are interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo - but the board will not force a move if Jose Mourinho doesn’t want him.
Cristiano Ronaldo has told Real Madrid he wants to leave the club.
United are said to be interested - having kept tabs on the player since he left for Real in 2009.
But they will not go over Mourinho’s head to sign Ronaldo if the boss doesn’t want the player at the club.
That is according to the Daily Mail, who claim Mourinho would then have to base his entire team around Ronaldo.
And the boss, who already faces a restructuring job following Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s departure, may not be keen on that.
15:30: Manchester United will continue their transfer dealings next week as they close in on a move for Ivan Perisic.
United want to sell Perisic and are aware that Inter Milan have to sell in order to meet Financial Fair Play regulations.
Corriere dello Sport claim the two camps will negotiate a deal next week.
United value Perisic at £35m but are hoping to get the deal done at a cheaper fee due to Inter’s FFP situation.
15:00: Roma and Inter Milan reportedly want to sign Matteo Darmian.
 defender Darmian played a bit-part role at the club last season and manager Jose Mourinho is supposedly open to a sale.
And Corriere Dello Sport claim the two Serie A clubs are keen on the right-back.
Roma are said to be planning a loan bid for the player with an obligation to buy next summer.
