Rio Ferdinand wants a new contract at Manchester United, with the defender likely to ask for another bumper deal, according to The
The former England captain currently earns around £120,000-a-week at Old Trafford and he is expected to secure a similar remuneration should United decide to extend his current deal.
And while the decision will ultimately be left to new manager David Moyes, Ferdinand is likely to be retained after outgoing boss Sir Alex Ferguson labelled his performances this season as the best since he joined the club 13 years ago.
The ex-Leeds United and West Ham defender had struggled with back problems in the latter stages of his career – an injury which threatened to prematurely end his playing career.
But injections seem to have alleviated those issues, allowing Ferdinand to contribute heavily to United’s 20th top division title in Ferguson’s final campaign at the club.
The 34-year-old has made 33 appearances across all competitions this season, and scored the winning goal in the 2-1 win over Swansea City at the weekend.
