Rio Ferdinand Names 'Mouthwatering' Front Six Manchester United Could Have Next Season
Rio Ferdinand believes that Manchester United's front six could be "mouthwatering" should they sign Jadon Sancho and keep hold of Paul Pogba.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer received a much-needed bolster to his attacking options in January with the acquisition of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting CP.
And Red Devils legend Ferdinand insisted that the club could further strengthen their position for the following campaign by adding Sancho and with Pogba remaining at Old Trafford.
"If I was looking at the team now and you have [Scott] McTominay with Bruno [Fernandes] on one side of the three and Pogba on the other [blows out cheeks]," the 41-year-old BT Sport pundit said on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE.
"[Marcus] Rashford up front, [Anthony] Martial on the left, [Daniel] James or if they're to buy Sancho on the right.
"You can't tell me other midfielders aren't going to be thinking: 'If these lot are on fire today, we're going to have to be on a game, it's going to be a hard day work for us.'

"There's ability there, it's ridiculous. If they can find that cohesion, the team set-up for them to flourish, it's mouthwatering what could happen.
"But it's ifs, buts and maybes. We need Paul Pogba fit, we need him in that team and to see what he's like to see if the relationship can be built with the players and the players Ole is acquiring now.
"It's up to Paul Pogba. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the powers that be at the club whether Paul Pogba stays at the football club, then we see.
"Look, I want him to stay. I'm a Manchester United fan [and] I want to see him wearing the red shirt so we can compete for the league and other things."
Sancho, 20, has quickly become one of Europe's fastest-rising stars after his stunning impact at Borussia Dortmund.
The England international, who is under contract until 2022, has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford as Solskjaer continues his overhauling of United's squad.
Pogba has been reduced to eight appearances this season, which has been curtailed due to different ankle injuries.
The 27-year-old United superstar, whose contract expires in 2021, has been linked with Real Madrid and former club Juventus.
