Man United's Ferguson: Ronaldo a phenomenon

Fergie salivates over his crown jewel Ronaldo as United go to Fulham

Manchester United's manager Sir Alex Ferguson has branded his Portguese star midfielder, Cristiano Ronaldo, a phenomenon for his incredible strike rate from a wide position.

Ronaldo needs just one more to reach 30 in all competitions and has already comfortably passed his previous best of 23 in the 2006/07 campaign. Manchester United go to Fulham on Saturday, and Ronaldo has scored seven times in his last five games against them. Few would bet against him adding to this tally as Manchester United continue their quest for the Premier League title.

You have to say for 12 million, Ronaldo has become a bargain. Liverpool had a deal lined up for 6 million at the time, but Manchester United came in and blew them out the water by offering 12 million. His value now would be off the scale and he is well on the way to becoming one of the games true greats.
