​Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand says Alderweireld would’ve been a top signing

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is disappointed his side did not do more to sign Toby Alderweireld.

United were linked with the Tottenham center back all summer, but never put in a serious offer.

And despite his age, Ferdinand believes he would have been a great signing for United.

The former United defender told BT Sport: “I was in favour of bringing Toby Alderweireld from Spurs.

“When playing regularly, I think he’s within the top two or three centre-halves in the country, in this league.

“I think he’s a fantastic player, he proved it again at the World Cup after not playing so many games last season.

“I thought he was a definite, he would have been my go-to choice to be honest.”
