Rio Ferdinand's Manchester United career is hanging in the balance, it has been claimed, and Tottenham could be a potential destination for the England centre-back.

According to the Daily Star, United have no plans to begin talks with Ferdinand over a new contract and Spurs could make a bid for his services as early as January.

Harry Redknapp is known to be a long-term admirer of the 32-year-old having given Ferdinand his break in professional football with West Ham.

It is now reported that the Spurs boss is keen to link-up with the United defender once again, and is closely monitoring his situation at Old Trafford.

Redknapp had hoped to sign a central defender during the summer but Spurs failed to bring Bolton's Gary Cahill to White Hart Lane.

He is, then, expected to dip into the transfer market once again in the New Year and Ferdinand is alleged to be on Redknapp's shopping list.

Ferdinand has made only seven appearances for United this season due to injury and faces greater competition for his place than ever before with Chris Smalling and Phil Jones performing to distinction in his absence.

MLS franchise Chicago Fire have also been linked with a move for the United stalwart.
