Rio Ferdinand Resists Offers From MLS To Sign New 1-Year Contract with Man United: The Nightly EPL

Manchester United veteran defender Rio Ferdinand has resisted offers from the US and China to sign a new one-year contract at Old Trafford.

The Guardian newspaper reports that Ferdinand received serious offers from the US and China, but decided to stay with United because of his young family as well as extending his career with the Red Devils beyond the eleven years he’s been there.
