Rio Ferdinand has underlined the importance of Manchester United’s transfer activity this summer.

The Red Devils won the Europa League for the first time in Stockholm on Wednesday night thanks to a 2-0 win against Dutch side Ajax.

Goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan sealed their place in next season’s Champions League after a disappointing sixth-placed finish in the Premier League.

Manchester United lifted the EFL Cup back in February thanks to a 3-2 win against Southampton at Wembley.

Jose Mourinho signed four players in the 2016 summer transfer window in an attempt to overhaul the Manchester United squad.

Former Manchester United defender Ferdinand believes more work is required in the imminent transfer window to ensure the Red Devils can progress next season.

“This transfer window is huge for them,” Ferdinand told BT Sport on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils will return to the Champions League next season after missing out on Europe’s premier club competition in the 2016-17 season.
