Defender says players would be ‘mad’ to turn down Old Trafford move.
Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has urged Cesc Fabregas and Robert Lewandowski to join him at the club claiming they would be ‘mad’ to turn them down, the Daily Mail reports.
The 34-year-old has recently signed a new one year extension with the club and has told the transfer targets that they will become better players as a result of moving to Old Trafford.
Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has been linked with a move to the Premier League champions for some time, but the German side have said that he will be staying with them, whilst Fabregas, who has been in and out of the Barcelona squad since joining from Arsenal, has distanced himself from a switch.
“If United come in for you, you take it.,” Ferdinand said.
“Even if you are a great player you become a better one at this club. Cristiano Ronaldo became the best player in the world having come from Sporting Lisbon.
“The likes of Ryan Giggs, Roy Keane, David Beckham, Andy Cole all became great players at United. With this platform you cannot believe anyone would ever turn it down.
“If you have ambition your aim has to be to make a name for yourself at a top club. As a player aged between say 23 and 27 that is what you should be looking at. It shows you are going somewhere and want to win trophies.”
