Manchester United hero Rio Ferdinand has insisted that his former club should make a move for Atletico Madrid centre-back Diego Godin.
Ferdinand, who could feature against his former side for QPR at Loftus Road this weekend, has suggested that the Red Devils should target the La Liga ace, if they are looking to improve their back-line.
The QPR defender was tweeting during Atletico's 2-2 draw against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu last night - a game in which Godin ultimately impressed in.
Godin, of course, has proved his credentials in the Spanish capital over the course of the past couple of years, and with Manchester United's need for defenders, it's certainly not surprising that Ferdinand has recommended the experienced Uruguayan to his former club.
After all, Godin, at 28 years of age, is in the prime of his career and is a natural leader of the back-line.

And, after Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Co. departed the Theatre of Dreams at the end of last season, United's defence has looked extremely vulnerable.
United in need
The likes of Phil Jones, Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling have all failed to maintain their fitness and best form under the Louis van Gaal era, so the Dutchman could yet look to improve in the defensive department in this transfer window.
In fact, the Atletico man has already been linked with a move to the Red Devils, with reports suggesting that he has a £28 million buyout clause in his current contract.
Godin, though, certainly wouldn't come cheap, however would prove the ideal signing for the club as they go in search of immediate success.
It remains to be seen as to whether the United hierarchy make their move for the centre-back anytime soon, but United fans will certainly be hoping that the club add to their defence sooner rather than later.
