Ferdinand: No one can turn down Manchester United

Published 7 Comments

Rio Ferdinand says any player would love to earn a move to Manchester United as the Premier League champions continue to chase a host of transfer targets this summer.

Ferdinand believes that if a club like Manchester United make an offer, then any player simply cannot say no.

‘If United come in for you, you take it,’ the Manchester United defender told The Sun.

‘Even if you are a great player you become a better one at this club. Cristiano Ronaldo became the best player in the world having come from Sporting Lisbon.

‘The likes of Ryan Giggs, Roy Keane, David Beckham, Andy Cole all became great players at United. With this platform you cannot believe anyone would ever turn it down.

'If you have ambition your aim has to be to make a name for yourself at a top club. As a player aged between say 23 and 27 that is what you should be looking at. It shows you are going somewhere and want to win trophies.'

The likes of Cesc Fabregas, Thiago Alcantara and Maroune Fellainin have all been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.

New boss David Moyes, named as successor to Sir Alex Ferguson last month, is reportedly keen on leaving his stamp on the Manchester United squad.

Newspaper reports suggest he has been given £60 million to splash on new recruits, with a move for either Alcantara or Fabregas believed to be high on his agenda.
