Ferdinand considering Man Utd exit

Rio Ferdinand is yet to decide his future at Manchester United as the centre-back considers leaving Old Trafford at the end of his current contract, the Daily Mail has reported.

Ferdinand’s contract at the club expires in the summer and he has not yet been offered fresh terms, although discussions are expected to begin in the new year. But it is not considered certain that Ferdinand puts pen to paper, with a host of other clubs, both in the Premier League and beyond, ready to make a move for the former England defender.

There is also the possibility that Ferdinand retires from football altogether, as, at 34 and with a history of back injuries, Ferdinand may not feel capable of completing a full season. The Mail adds that this winter will go a long way towards making up Ferdinand’s mind on whether or not to play on.

Ferdinand has been at United since 2002, moving to the club from Leeds United, having spent two years at Elland Road following a transfer from first club West Ham United. In his time under Sir Alex Ferguson, Ferdinand has won five Premier League titles, two League Cups and the Champions League.
