Rio Ferdinand Goes In On Manchester United's Transfer Window

Rio Ferdinand Goes In On Manchester United's Transfer Window

Rio Ferdinand has voiced his frustration at Manchester United's lack of transfer activity, whilst their rivals have continued to improve their squads.

United managed to finish third last season after a turnaround in fortunes in the second half of the season, with Bruno Fernandes' arrival the catalyst for the change.

Despite that it was obvious to most that the squad needed improving and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were expected to start by signing Jadon Sancho, a deal that hasn't happened.

With time running out in the transfer window the Premier League side have only added Donny van de Beek so far and Ferdinand is clearly annoyed.

"Frank (Lampard) has made signing players like it's the norm, like it's easy - water off a duck's back," the former England captain said on the FIVE YouTube channel.

"'The difference in the way Chelsea have done their business compared to say my team Man United... there is no noise, there's nothing going on, all you're seeing is bang - deal.

"Little bit of talk, bang-deal.

"That is what's frustrating for me and all the Man United fans."

Rio Ferdinand Shares Five Year Old Conversation With Jadon Sancho As Manchester United Close In On Deal

published at3 months ago

Whilst United have struggled to sign their top priority players, Lampard's Chelsea have added Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva to the side that finished fourth last season.

The Blues aren't the only of United's rivals to be improving and Spurs are set to add Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon to their side this week, two players Solskjaer's side were interested in.

The main frustration for United, and Ferdinand, comes from the lack of movement with the Sancho deal though.

"Sancho was talked about months ago," Ferdinand added, "Still not done, it's so frustrating, I'm not saying deals are easy to be done but Chelsea are showing deals can be done if you put the money down and it's all done in the right way."

According to most reports the Borussia Dortmund forward does want to sign for the Old Trafford club, United want him and the Germans are willing to sell.

The stumbling block comes with the £108 million asking price that Dortmund have put on the 20-year-old, with United so far unwilling to match it.

United have just over two weeks to make any more transfers and time is certainly running out for them.
