Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Manchester United should prioritize signing Declan Rice more than Eduardo Camavinga. The club have already signed Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer and has been heavily linked to the Rennes midfielder. United finished runners-up to their neighbor’s Manchester City. they lost by 11 points with the gap decreasing on account of the champions prioritizing the UEFA Champions League.
“I’ve not seen enough of him if I’m honest,” Ferdinand said about Camavinga. “I’ve seen a bit of him, his debut against PSG where he got man of the match, unreal. Talent? Obviously. Is he going to come in and affect the team right now and become a star, or is he going to come in and be a bit like an Amad [Diallo], who comes in for £40m but is nowhere near the starting XI?”
“Is that what we need? Or do we need someone like Declan Rice who is flying at the moment? In an England shirt, he’s taken it to other levels now. We all knew he was a good player at West Ham but what Declan Rice is doing in the England team right now, for his age, is madness,” Rio Ferdinand added. “Then it comes down to have Man United got the funds to go and get him from West Ham? What are they going to ask for West Ham? For me, I’ve got to be honest, football ability Camavinga, Rice are fantastic players. You can see the potential a mile off. But Rice brings you character.”
