Rio Ferdinand warns Man United against Eduardo Camavinga move; he identifies alternative

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has asserted that Eduardo Camavinga may not be the best midfield focus for the club and supported a move for Declan Rice all instead.

Camavinga has arisen as an objective for United this mid year, as he enters the last a year of his agreement with Ligue 1 side Rennes. The 18-year-old is seen by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a hot possibility for the short and long-term in midfield.

According to ManchesterEvening, West Ham and England midfielder Rice has also been identified as a player United admire in the defensive midfield position. But with the Hammers holding out for in excess of £90million this summer, a deal in this transfer window seems unlikely.

Ferdinand said: “I’ve not seen enough of him if I’m honest. I’ve seen a bit of him, his debut against PSG where he got man of the match, unreal.

“Talent? Obviously. Is he going to come in and effect the team right now and become a star, or is he going to come in and be a bit like an Amad, who comes in for £40m but is nowhere near the starting 11?

“Is that what we [United] need? Or do we need someone like Declan Rice who is flying at the moment? In an England shirt, he’s taken it to other levels now. We all knew he was a good player at West Ham but what Declan Rice is doing in the England team right now, for his age, is a madness.

“Then it comes down to have Man United got the funds to go and get him from West Ham? What are they going to ask for West Ham?

“For me, I’ve got to be honest, football ability Camavinga, Rice are fantastic players. You can see the potential a mile off. But Rice brings you character.

“He brings you a character that’s probably not in the game as much now as it was in my generation. Someone who is a sponge to information and wants to get better. Wants to get into an environment of winning constantly. He’s envious of his mates who are winning things. He reminds me a bit of myself, when I was his age.

“You want to get there and get into an environment where you want to win, and have a chance to win.

“Whether that’s Man United or not, I think he probably thinks that at West Ham at the moment [that] he’s done there and as much as he loves the club and the people there, especially after the Euros — I did it after a World Cup with Leeds, I’ve smelt and tasted that chance of being around world class players — ‘I need that every week. I need that now.'”
