So, Will Rio Sign A New Contract?

So, Will Rio Sign A New Contract?

The club will start contract negotiations with Rio Ferdinand in the near future.

The 29-year-old defender's deal will expire in 2009 and the club will open the talks at the end of the current campaign.

Hopefully, this will not turn into a Brown-saga: we had experienced Rio's hesitation to sign a new contract before and none of us wish to feel that again.

I think he will sign but a couple of papers reported that, like Brown who was blasted for living in his agent's pocket, he is not happy with United's initial offer - or what is thought to be their initial offer.

Ferdinand on a free transfer - I bet there would be a number of clubs who would jump at the opportunity so he's got the power to make the club increase its offer. I don't think Fergie will tolerate losing Rio so it could turn serious if the Glazers refuse to meet his demands.

But as he will turn 30 this November, the best thing for him would be to sign a new contract and finish his career there. I know that money will be an issue with Ferdinand, we all know he's not the kind of loyal-through-thick-and-thin person but that does not mean he's got to leave.

Don´t think he´ll be eager to leave as he´past it, he might try to buy time for a season or two at Manure, but I doubt any other club will want him after that.
