Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is fielding bank-busting contract offers from around the world.

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is fielding bank-busting contract offers from around the world.

The Sun says Ferdinand has had multi-million-pound offers from two Middle Eastern clubs, two from Russia, plus Turkish big-spenders Galatasaray and French outfit Monaco.

Brazilians Flamengo also want the centre-back, 34, which would mean Rio playing in Rio!

John Terry has also been linked with a move to Galatasaray but Ferdinand is their No 1 priority and it is understood they would not sign both players.

A close source said: “Rio and United always agreed he’d talk about his contract situation once the season ended.

“There are a plenty of clubs out there who want him. He’ll be the best free transfer in English football.”
