The latest news about Kamawenga’s transfer, Varane “promises” to the Red Devils, and Xiao “ready to accept new deals”
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand revealed that Liverpool ace Thiago called him in 2013 to join the Red Devils.
The midfielder left Barcelona and eventually joined Bayern Munich.
But if Manchester United removed their fingers, the situation could be quite different-and the only player David Moyes brought in at the deadline was Marouan Fellaini.
On his YouTube show Vibe with FIVE, Ferdinand explained: “Before Thiago left Barcelona, ??he called me.
“We played against Barcelona in the United States on the tour. He was unreal. He played at the 10th position and he scored a world-class player.
“So we know him anyway, and a few years later, Moyes became a manager.
“I don’t talk to Thiago, I don’t know him, but David De Gea gave him my phone number.
“‘He called me and he said:’Rio, I really want to come to Manchester United. Can you talk to others?'”
