Rio Ferdinand, who is 31, has claimed that he would like to spend the rest of his career at United, a club he has played for since he was 23-years-old.

“I want to retire while at United,” said Rio. “It would be great to do what Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes have done and stick with one club for a long time. Finishing my career at United would be a dream come true and those guys are such inspirations. They are all synonymous with Manchester United and I want to achieve that as well. I would like to be remembered as a player who was at United during a successful period in the club’s history. When I first arrived, I knew this place was special and when the time comes to walk away I want to be able to do so with my head held high.”
