Manchester:

Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson won't be selling striker Ruud van Nistelrooy cheaply. "You can absolutely guarantee that we're not going to give Ruud away," Ferguson told Manchester United's Web site on Tuesday. Ferguson said last week that the Dutch international had asked to leave United and that there was interest from Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. "There's a possibility that Ruud will go," Ferguson said. "There have been bits of interest in him, but no one at this moment has reached our asking price. "It's no surprise, really, that he asked to go, but when you see that Andriy Shevchenko went for 30 million pounds, he's a similar age to Ruud and their record in Europe is almost identical." Manchester United is currently on a preseason tour of South Africa. United signed Van Nistelrooy in April 2001 for a then-British record fee of 19 million pounds. (AP)
