TRAITOR?

Ferdinand was answering questions from fans on his Twitter account and said if he could sign anyone for the Old Trafford club it would be the Liverpool man

Ever since Paul Ince scored a late equaliser for Liverpool against former club Manchester United in May 1999, Sir Alex vowed to do everything to make sure none of his players would end up playing for the old enemy.

Almost 20 years on, Michael Owen is the only one to have played for both clubs since Ince, although he started his career at Liverpool.

This is not on in the eyes of many fans but former United defender has revealed he would bring Reds star Virgil van Dijk to Old Trafford if he had the power to do so.

Van Dijk joined Liverpool in January 2018 for £75million and has been a revelation at Anfield being one of their top players as Jurgen Klopp’s men mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils have been very shaky at the back this season, conceding 35 goals in the league so far, more than they shipped in the whole of last season (28).

And when Ferdinand was asked by fans on his Twitter page which player he would bring to United, he chose Van Dijk as that’s the area the 13-time Premier League winners need to strengthen the most.

He said: “I’m going with @VirgilvDijk…the position we’re in most need! #AskRio”
