Ferdinand sends clear Marquinhos message to Manchester United about summer deal
Rio Ferdinand has told Manchester United that Paris Saint-Germain star Marquinhos is “the only place” to go.
Rio Ferdinand says Manchester United need look no further than Paris Saint-Germain’s Marquinhos if they are looking to sign a defender in the transfer window.
There is alot of rumours that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be backed in the transfer window and will look to add another defender, a midfielder and maybe a striker to his attack in order to win every possible title that they will be competing for.
Marquinhos is a player that has been linked to the Premier League on a number of occasions, and there has been some speculation in the media that he is one of the players that Solskjaer would like to Bring to Old Trafford in the summer.
And Ferdinand says there is only one player they should be looking at to upgrade their defence, identifying PSG skipper Marquinhos as one of the very best centre-backs in the world.
‘If any team is in the market for a centre-back, right now, out of the top teams, with the finances, Marquinhos is the only place I’m going,’ Ferdinand said on his Vibe with Five YouTube show.
‘Big-game player. Every big game you see that guy play he turns up.
‘Fit as you like, quick, robust, hardened, battle-hardened, understands the big-game environments. Top, top player, great attitude, leader, got it all.
‘If I’m looking for a centre-back of experience who can take me to the next level, he’s the one I’m going for.’
Marquinhos is world class and is just the kind of statement signing that would worry Pep Guardiola over at City. United certainly have a chance of signing Marquinhos, but will PSG let him leave?
