Recently, Rio Ferdinand has been increasingly criticizing the club where he spent the best days of his career. The fact is that Manchester United has missed the track and it is unlikely that they will return to the same track again.

The January transfer window will be a chance for Erik ten Hag to strengthen his team. One of the first names to be linked with Manchester United is Ronald Araujo, currently a Barcelona player. Looking at Erik ten Hag's decisions, Ferdinand does not recommend Araujo to sign for United.

‘If I’m a player like Ronald who I think has every attribute to be one of the best defenders in the world, why are you going United?’ Ferdinand told Vibe with Five, as quoted by METRO! ‘I’d be looking at Varane and going if he can go to Manchester United and get benched for a left-back, or for an old veteran like Jonny Evans an ex-player who has come back for his twilight years and someone who used to be captain who was left out for 18 months but is back in form now and is playing, I can’t go there and risk my life and risk my career.

Rio Ferdinand on players' value

Rio Ferdinand is disappointed that most of the footballers who came to Manchester United lost their value. Few have really raised their level and shown that they deserve to be part of this club.

This is what frustrates Rio Ferdinand.

‘If you look at it what player has gone to Manchester United and got better. Varane has got worse, Casemiro has gone backwards now in their value and worth. You’d get good money for Bruno still, he’s the only one.

Wan-Bissaka you aren’t getting £50million now, they aren’t getting what they paid for Dalot, I’m sure. Amad Diallo the Ivory Coast boy. I could go through them all. I don’t know who comes in? ‘Would you get the same money for Hojlund now? No! Sancho? I could keep going if you want. Van de Beek?’
