Man United legend pondering one last hurrah

QPR defender Rio Ferdinand is considering extending his career by another year, with reports from The Mirror claiming that America or the Middle East could be options for the ex-Manchester United man.

The 36-year-old defender left the Red Devils on a free transfer to sign for the Super Hoops last year, but his spell in London has not been overly successful so far.

This had led to suggestion Ferdinand – who has multiple off-field businesses and pursuits – would hang up his boots at the end of the season, which he has claimed would be probable.

However, the ageing star is thought to have altered his stance, with one more season appealing.

Ferdinand will hold off on making a final decision until QPR’s relegation battle reaches an end, but offers from MLS sides and Middle Eastern outfits are likely to be plentiful.

The once England ace is liable to earn a lucrative salary of he takes either route.
