The former England international’s current contract with the Premier League champions is now set to run out on June 30 2014 and the word coming out of Old Trafford at the moment is that the Red Devils have no intention of offering the 35-year-old a new deal to remain at the club beyond this summer.

All of which means that Ferdinand is believed to now be weighing up a number of offers that are currently on the table for next season which are thought to also include being handed the opportunity to end his career with a big-money move to either China or the Middle East too.
