Rio Ferdinand makes ‘huge’ prediction about Man United transfers
The former Manchester United defender believes Jose Mourinho is facing a big summer at Old Trafford
Rio Ferdinand says this summer will be huge for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.
The Red Devils have endured a difficult first season under the Portuguese coach after Mourinho was appointed as Louis van Gaal’s successor back in May.
Mourinho wasted no time spending £150m on new signings last summer in an attempt to overhaul the squad that he inherited at Manchester United.
Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba have all made a positive impact on the Red Devils team.
Mourinho’s side have struggled to find consistency and the Red Devils are in sixth place in the Premier League table with a top-four finish looking unlikely.
However, Manchester United have won the Community Shield, the EFL Cup and have managed to reach the Europa League final.
Speaking to BT Sport about what Mourinho needs to do in the summer to continue making progress at Manchester United, ex-defender Ferdinand said:
“I think Jose Mourinho is still searching for his first XI, he’s still not sure of a few players. This summer will be huge for them.”
Manchester United lost 2-0 to Arsenal in the Premier League last weekend.
