Manchester United assistant manager Carlos Queiroz has denied reports claiming United were poised to sign Real Madrid pair Michael Owen and Iker Casillas.

“Casillas is not in Manchester’s plans, Owen does not interest us either, and there is no Figo negotiation,” he said.

Queiroz also denied that Real had made an approach for Cristiano Ronaldo.

“He still has three years to go on his contract so we will see what happens,” Luis Correia, business partner of Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes commented.

“He will travel to Portugal with his team later this month so maybe a deal will be sorted out then.

“Of course, he is a top player and will attract interest from other clubs, but he is just concentrating on his football at the moment.”
