News on Man Utd: Rio Ferdinand reacts to the failed moves of Alderweireld, Maguire and Varane

Jose Mourinho was desperate to strengthen his defensive options this summer and Tottenham's Alderweireld, Maguire of Leicester City and Real Madrid, the star Varane, were all targeted.
The Belgian national Alderweireld emerged as Mourinho's first goal at the start of the window, but United failed to sign an agreement with the Premier League spurs.

The Red Devils quickly turned their attention to Maguire, but Leicester had no desire to sell and slapped a huge $ 75 million price tag on the defender's head.
Mourinho would also be willing to pay £ 100m to bring Varane to Old Trafford, but United bosses were not convinced and had not signed any day.
Of all the defenders who were tied to profitable moves at the Theater of Dreams, it was Alderweireld that Ferdinand expected to sign for his former club.
"I was in favor of bringing Toby Alderweireld from the Spurs," the former British international told BT Sport.
