EPL: He’ll fill in for Cristiano Ronaldo – Ferdinand names player Man Utd should sign

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has urged the club to sign Brighton striker, Danny Welbeck.

Ferdinand believes Welbeck, a former Man United star, would fill in for Cristiano Ronaldo in the Red Devils squad and free space for Bruno Fernandes.

This is coming after Brighton defeated Man United 2-1 in a Premier League tie on Sunday.

Speaking on his Vibe with Five YouTube channel, Ferdinand said, “Welbeck walked out of that tunnel and you could see, shoulders back, chest out, thinking – ‘I will terrorise these two [Martinez and Maguire]’.

“That is how he played today, he looked like prime-time Danny Welbeck at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid 10 years ago.”

On whether Man Utd should sign Welbeck if they had the opportunity to, Ferdinand added: “On that performance [Man Utd vs Brighton], no doubt. If you want a back-up striker, you would not go far wrong with Danny Welbeck.

“Say to him, ‘you are going to play 15/20 games over the season, fill in for Cristiano’. It gives us the legs, gives us the movement – the running behind defenders like he did today and it frees up the space for the likes of Bruno.”
