Sir Alex Ferguson insists he has no worries about Rio Ferdinand's contract situation.

The long-serving Manchester United defender's present deal expires in the summer meaning he is now free to negotiate terms with any continental club. With apparent interest in the 34-year-old from both the United States and Far East, it puts United at risk of losing one of their most experienced players

But Ferguson is confident the situation will eventually reach a satisfactory resolution. "We are not panicking about that," said Ferguson. "I don't think Rio wants to leave and, as I have said before, he can play on."
