Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has told the Red Devils to sign Lille defender, Leny Yoro this summer.

In a chat on his YouTube channel, Ferdinand stated that Man United must sign a centre-back capable of complimenting Lisandro Martinez’s effort at the back.

“They’ve got to get a fit Luke Shaw and Lisandro Martinez back and playing more regularly next season. Get them two fit and then you need to buy another centre-back, definitely.

“Do we go for experience or a young one? Leny Yoro is the young lad from France, Lille. I think he’s top, he has huge potential and could be anything.

“I don’t think Real Madrid are going to be in the market for a centre-back so I think he’s there ready to be taken and I would take him now. You would get a good five or ten years out of him.”

Yoro played in 32 Ligue 1 games last season and helped Bruno Genesio’s side finish fourth and make the Champions League qualifiers.
