Rio Ferdinand wants to see EuroJournal back on top and is doing all he can to ensure it happens – even acting as an ‘agent’!
The former Old Trafford centre-back is keen to see quality come in and is hoping Raphael Varane is signed, following the capture of Jadon Sancho.
Varane has been linked with a move away from Real Madrid this transfer window, with the Red Devils being touted as one of his potential destinations.
The defender has 12 months left on his contract and is thought to be keen on a new challenge away from La Liga.
Real have already lost Sergio Ramos to PSG, someone Varane had played 360 games with over 10 seasons, and do not want to see another go.
However, United want to add another centre-back to their ranks and Ferdinand is the man to help apparently.
Asked on Instagram to send the wanted man a message to convince him to move to Old Trafford, he replied: “Already have done. Agent Ferdy.”
The former England defender didn’t reveal if Varane had replied, but a move is very likely on the cards.
Real Madrid owner Florentino Perez, though, insisted the side haven’t had any official offers just yet.

“He’s at the Euros now then we will see what happens – if he wants to leave the club this summer, he’ll say it,” Perez said.
Villarreal’s Pau Torres is another name on the shortlist and is someone United fans will remember for being part of the team that defeated them in the Europa League final.
