Man United keen on luring former star back to club in shock new Mourinho twist

Jose Mourinho is keen on drafting Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand into the club as he plots a major revamp of the club’s backroom staff, according to the Daily Mail.

Following the arrival of the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’, the future of United icon Ryan Giggs as assistant manager has been cast into doubt.

While whether or not the Welshman will continue his 29 year stay at Old Trafford remains to be seen, though the Portuguese is thought to be keen on bringing Ferdinand back to the club.

He is reportedly keen on bringing people with a deep knowledge about proceedings at the club into his inner circle.

The former England international spent 12 years as a player under Sir Alex Ferguson, winning six Premier League titles and the Champions League on the way.

He left in 2014 to spent a season with Queens Park Rangers, though injuries were catching up to him and he soon called it a day.

It is unknown whether the ex-Leeds United man would be keen on uprooting his young family from their home in the South East.
