Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has begged to club to complete the signing of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho this summer, who he describes as a ‘special talent.’
The Red Devils have been strongly linked to the 120 million pounds player all summer but want the Bundesliga side to reduce the asking price following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on world economy but they refused to budge.
Ferdinand tweeted: “The kid has mad talent. I need him at Manchester United, please I’m begging, I’m almost begging.”
Previously, the former Leeds United defender had said about the winger: “I would take him [at United] all day. English, young, hungry and talented, that’s all I need to know. I have known Jadon since he was a kid, knew him through friends.
“I have known his family since he was a kid, before he was even born. He has got the mentality. The mentality is a big part of it all, whether he has the physical attributes or not.
“The kid’s mentality, to leave Manchester City, who wanted him to stay, to just say ‘My ability deserves it and I think I can do it straight away, right now. I am not waiting.’ And he has gone and done that. You have to respect that.”
Dortmund had come out to say the player will be staying at the club this season but Manchester United believe they can strike a deal to take the player to Old Trafford before the transfer deadline on October 5.
