The 35 year old centre-back is fielding offers from Turkish sides Galatasaray and Besiktas as well as from Qatar side Al Gharafa but a move to join MLS side LA Galaxy seems the most likely to tempt Ferdinand.

It seems unlikely Ferdinand will be offered a new Man United contract and as such his glittering career at the Premier League club is set to come to an end.

The former West Ham and Leeds United man moved to the club in a £29m deal back in July 2002 and has gone on to make over 450 appearances for Man United helping his side to a host of honours in the process.

Ferdinand has won six Premier League crowns, two League Cups and a Champions League in 2007/08.

Rio’s centre-back partner Nemanja Vidic has already agreed a move to join Inter Milan whilst fellow veteran Patrice Evra may also be set to leave Man United as his contract also expires in a matter of months.
