Rio Ferdinand has taken to social media to ask Patrice Evra whether he is considering a return to Manchester United in the January transfer window.

Evra left Old Trafford to move to Juventus in July 2014 after enjoying a hugely successful career with the Red Devils.

Now that the January transfer window is open, there is bound to be plenty of speculation linking Manchester United with a host of players.

Manchester United legend Ferdinand has claimed to have heard a rumour linking Evra with a return to Old Trafford this month.

And the former Red Devils defender used his personal Instagram account to pose the question directly to Evra.

Ferdinand posted the photo above on the app and wrote the caption: “Throwing it out there… @patrice.evra I’m hearing thru social media u coming home bro?!? Talk to me! 👀 #MUFC”
