It isn't just Chicago Fire which want to lure Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand away from the Premier League. The Daily Mail says Ferdinand is a target for two of Qatar's richest clubs as they look to capitalise on his uncertain future at Manchester United.

Mega-rich Qatari side Lekhwiya are planning a shock move for the England defender.

The country's most successful club, Al Sadd, have also sounded out Ferdinand's representatives over a move, though Lekhwiya's spending power makes them favourites should the 32-year-old agree to move.
