Rio Ferdinand has publicly admired Everton midfielder Ross Barkley…
Manchester United’s stalwart defender Rio Ferdinand has got fans talking by publicly admiring Everton’s 19-year-old central midfielder Ross Barkley.
United have been chasing central-midfielders all summer, but have so far not managed to bring in a top target. New boss David Moyes enjoyed a a successful opening Premier league match, beating ambitious Swansea 4-1 away from home, but is still looking to reinforce the squad.
Moyes managed Barkley while at Everton, but the Toffees will not be keen to sell their exciting prospect.
Going home to watch some football, heard Ross Barkley at Everton was producing some nice stuff..very comfy baller..got the tools in locker!
