Man City owners chasing Man Utd's Ferdinand

Manchester City's new owners are chasing Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand.

The Manchester Evening News says Ferdinand is the only English player City's new Arab owners want in their dream team.

The United defender has been named by Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim who has already said he'll be bidding £120m for Cristiano Ronaldo in the January transfer window.

Other players he names in Arabian Business magazine include Italian keeper Gianluigi Buffon, Cesc Fabregas, Kaka, Lionel Messi, Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba.

Ferdinand signed a new five-year contract in April on a salary believed to be £120,000 a week.
