Manchester United star craves extended Old Trafford stay

rioHere in the Football Transfer Tavern, Manchester United fans are keen to hear the latest claim from the Daily Mail.

The publication seem to think that despite Rio Ferdinand wanting to stay at Old Trafford, the Red Devils defender has accepted that his future may lie elsewhere.

As our landlord points out whilst pouring another round of pints, the ex-West Ham United defender is one of the names we mention the most when it comes to the exit door this summer.

Given as many as ten players look like leaving, we think Rio is odds on to be one of those.

The defender had initially toyed with the idea of retiring from the game altogether, but it seems that idea has gone out of the window if his latest comments are to be believed.

The former England international noted: “I want to continue playing – that’s the aim. The legs haven’t given way yet.

“Whether that’s at Manchester United or  somewhere else depends on what the club want to do.

“We’ll have to wait and see at the end of the  season. We’ll do what we did last season – speak and see where we’re at.”

Do you think Moyes would give Rio another chance? Does he even deserve one given his form this season? Let us know your thoughts below.
