Rio Ferdinand speaks on Varane and Maguire side-by-side work at Manchester United

Rio Ferdinand speaks on Varane and Maguire side-by-side work at Manchester United

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand accepts that Raphael Varane would cause a fantastic defensive partner for club captain harry Maguire if his move from Real Madrid goes through.

Varane has been connected with a transfer to Old Trafford the entire summer after plainly he needs to leave the Bernabeu for another test following ten years at the club.

United are intrigued and have made him their No.1 focus for the middle back position close by Maguire — yet there is some distance between their valuation of the player and Real Madrid’s right now.

Speaking on his official YouTube channel ‘Vibe with Five’, Ferdinand said: “He brings an absolute winning mentality. I think he’s played in 14 finals and won 14. So there’s an absolute winning mentality, he knows how to win, he’s got great experience and he’s an unbelievable specimen by the way.

“I’ve been saying alongside Maguire he needs someone with some pace the way Man United play.

“When I’ve seen Man United in problems and in trouble in games, a lot of the time teams have been given a bit of confidence or seen a chink in the armour of Man United when they see they can get people one v one or play the ball over the defence, into one of the channels and then it’s a race.

“We haven’t had the players quick enough to do that in the centre-back areas. If you get someone like him, people start thinking ‘well we ain’t gonna play the ball over the top cos Varane is gonna eat that up.’ Someone like him, he’ll bring that authority I hope to the back line.”

Ferdinand was then asked if Varane was world class and replied emphatically: “Yeah he is, 100 per cent.”
