Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has advised Alexis Sanchez to join Manchester City instead of the Red Devils, in what will be a disappointing development for United supporters.
United have strongly been linked with hijacking City’s bid for Sanchez, with the Chilean out of contract at the end of the season and Arsenal looking resigned to cashing in on him now rather than lose him for nothing in the summer.
And Ferdinand, who enjoyed a trophy-laden career at United between the years of 2002 and 2014, believes that the Chile international has more chances of winning silverware with Pep Guardiola's side.
Speaking on BT Sport following Tottenham's victory over Everton, Ferdinand said: “I am going to be honest, if he has got an option to go from Arsenal to go to Manchester City or Manchester United, as a footballer who wanted to win trophies and would judge myself based on trophies being won, at the moment Manchester City looks like the place to go for him in that respect.
“They are top of the league, they are going to win the league this season, they are in the Champions League, they are looking like they will be in the final for the League cup, the FA Cup as well potentially. So he has got more opportunities to win trophies there."
