Club legend says Man Utd will regret it if they let this defender go elsewhere

Manchester United have been struggling to score goals this season, and it seems ironic that our defence has been the biggest plus of the campaign; Something which I personally never expected to say. However Rio Ferdinand has urged Louis van Gaal to delve into the market to sign another centre-back.

The United legend has told United that they will regret not signing John Stones and allowing him to go to another side would be a huge mistake.

“Your platform for winning titles starts in defence. If John Stones goes to another English club Manchester United will regret it.” Rio Ferdinand said.

“I don’t care how much it is. You are getting a player for ten years.”

At the end of the day, John Stones has all the attributes to turn into one of the best centre-halves in the world. He has top quality awareness for a defender of his age, and he loves to play it out from the back.

If Manchester United are keen on him, he’d certainly cost an awful lot of money, as Chelsea saw bids in excess of £40million knocked back over the summer.
