Rio Ferdinand admits he is unsure where his future lies beyond the summer transfer window.

The retired England centre-half’s current Manchester United contract is set to expire at the end of the season.

I don’t know if whether the new manager will help me [stay at United], I just want the best solution for the club

The Red Devils are yet to offer the defender a new deal, with Louis van Gaal expected to replace interim manager Ryan Giggs.

And the 35-year-old isn’t sure whether he will be part of the next manager’s plans and is open to offers – above the Conference!

“The club at the moment is in a position where they can’t really make any decisions about anything,” the former Leeds United centre-back is quoted as saying by the Mirror.

“For me to be saying, ‘I want to do this or that’ is irrelevant.

“We’ve got to see who becomes the new manager and boxes will be ticked from there. I don’t know if whether the new manager will help me [stay at United], I just want the best solution for the club.

“Whatever it is, I’ll respect it. After that, I’m open to offers, but I’d rather wait and see what happens at United, then there will be a decision for me to make – but I won’t go below the Conference!”
