Ferdinand Reveals He Offered Himself To Play For Arsenal For Free But …

he ex-Manchester United defender has revealed that he reached out to the Frenchman regarding signing for Arsenal after his contract at Old Trafford expired

Former Manchester United stalwart Rio Ferdinand has revealed that he contacted Arsene Wenger about potentially signing for Arsenal on a free transfer in 2014.

Ferdinand, now a TV pundit, ultimately joined QPR upon the expiry of his United contract before retiring at the end of the 2014-15 season having made just 11 appearances during his time in the capital.

However, the 37-year-old has now disclosed that he also reached out to Arsenal boss Wenger, though a move to the club that represented United’s biggest rivals for much of Ferdinand’s time at Old Trafford did not materialise.

In response to a poster claiming Ferdinand should have moved to Arsenal on social media site Twitter, the former West Ham and Leeds defender posted: “I did reach out to Mr Wenger!!”
