Rio Ferdinand can't believe Toby Alderweireld didn't move to Old Trafford
- Alderweireld was linked with Man United all summer
- Rio has expressed his disbelief it never materialised
Rio Ferdinand was so much looking forward to greeting the Belgium international at Old Trafford that he even explicitly [yet jokingly] told Ed Woodward to wrap the business up on the deadline day.
''I was in favour of bringing Toby Alderweireld from Spurs,'' said our legendary defender on BT when asked about Man United's summer business. ''When playing regularly, I think he’s within the top two or three centre-halves in the country, in this league.
''I think he’s a fantastic player, he proved it again at the World Cup after not playing so many games last season. I thought he was a definite, he would have been my go-to choice to be honest.''
