Manchester United are considering replacing the outgoing Rio Ferdinand with Feyenoord centre-back Bruno Martins Indi, according to The Manchester Evening News.
Ferdinand revealed last night that he will be departing Old Trafford in search of a fresh challenge, and it now appears that Martins Indi is being lined up to replace him.
The 22-year-old, who has played a key role for Louis van Gaal's Dutch side in recent time, is an extremely exciting talent and could now be set for a move to Manchester United in the up coming market.
With Ferdinand following Nemanja Vidic out of the Old Trafford exit door, Manchester United only have the likes of Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones battling it out for the centre-half positions at the club.
It remains to be seen as to whether Manchester United step up in their pursuit of Martins Indi in the near future, but fans will be hoping a new manager is quickly appointed.
Many believe Van Gaal will be offered the role of Manchester United's new manager, however the position still appears to be vacant.
