Manchester United have been linked with signing Premier League duo – Wolves Ruben Neves and Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans – in the summer transfer window.
However, club legend Rio Ferdinand thinks Man Utd should avoid signing the midfield duo, insisting that they are not quality enough.
When asked about Man Utd potentially signing Neves, Ferdinand said on his Vibe with Five YouTube channel: “I like him, he’s fantastic, he keeps the ball as well as anyone, a really good footballer.”
When put to him that the midfield at Old Trafford next season should be Neves, Tielemans and Bruno Fernandes, Ferdinand replied: “That wouldn’t be my choice, I’ve got to be honest.
“I like them, good players, but if you think that midfield is getting you any closer to the other teams I’d argue against it. Mobility-wise we’d be lacking.”
