The Sun today has an ‘exclusive’ which claims Rio Ferdinand is thinking about a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid.

“Rio can see the sense of it,” said ‘a source’. “Not only would it be a fresh challenge as he nears the end of his career, it would also fit all his projects off the pitch. Rio has big business plans, which are already taking shape, and would really take off if he moved to one of the big Spanish clubs.”

Whilst Rio hasn’t always endeared himself to United fans, I’m of the opinion he certainly feels a strong connection with our club now and won’t be thinking about anything other than seeing out his playing days at United (and hoping Terry fucks another teenager so he can rightfully claim the England captaincy!).

Rio is no David Beckham and he certainly doesn’t have a fame-hungry wife. He says he loves the club and I can’t see a reason for him to move. He’s 30-years-old and there would be no reason to uproot his young family to make a quick buck in Spain.
