Rio Ferdinand, Manchester United legend has come out to react to Declan Rice to MUFC rumours. He recently revealed that the Englishman might not be a pressing need for the Red Devils right now.
According to him, even if he understands why Ole would be keen on a midfielder that could spend the next 10 years at Old Trafford, he believes a CB and RW are the absolute necessities.
Ferdinand added that whoever buys Declan Rice will surely be guaranteed top midfield service for a long time.
His words, “With a position like Declan’s, it’s more: do Man Utd feel he’s an absolute need right now? Are there other areas in the team where they have a bigger desire to recruit for?”
“I think centre-back, 100 per cent, and I think right wing, 100%.”
“West Ham fans are going mad on social media by the way, they’re hammering me like, ‘Why you saying Man Utd should buy him?!’ I was asked a question and I answered the question honestly. If Man Utd act on my information and my say-so, then so be it.”
“I think whoever buys Declan Rice buys someone who’s going to be there and committed for 10 years, giving you top-quality service, and someone who will be a driver of the right culture at your football club.”
“That’s what you’re buying. And obviously a player who’s still got levels to grow in his game, and who’s hungry.”
