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.

  1. Gaffer, I hear your question but this is old hack. For the past 2 years we have been hearing how Rio is past it, too old blah, blah. Rio is taking care of himself and as long as he does that he will be a very valuable contributor to United.

    I wish Rooney would learn from players like him and Giggs and take care of himself so that he can return to form.

    Rio will be there to mentor Smalling, Jones and a few of the youth players and get them playing even better. Our defense if it stays healthy is actually strong it is the middle of the park where we have issues.

  2. It’s a great move for both club and player. Rios been one of our most consistent performers this season and if I’m not mistaken I think he might have played the most games out of all our defenders. He’s still git a couple years left as long as he keeps looking after himself in the right way. Why would he want to play in the MLS when he can win league titles with Utd.
