EPL: Rio Ferdinand names 3 Man United players that will benefit most from Ronaldo's return


Premier League legend, Rio Ferdinand, has named the three Manchester United players, who will benefit the most from Cristiano Ronaldo's return to the club.

Manchester United hijacked their city rival's move for the Portugal captain on Friday and quickly agreed a fee with Juventus before announcing his re-signing

Ferdinand, who played alongside the former Real Madrid star during his first spell at Old Trafford, noted that Ronaldo will bring a wealth of experience and know-how to Manchester United.

He especially named Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford as players the Portugal international can have a massive impact on.

"What he brings off the pitch guys, forget everything else what he does, what he can do for Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford and Sancho is worth bringing," Ferdinand said on his FIVE YouTube show.

"What he can do for just those guys, when he leaves, those three could be the front three for Man United who they have invested time in.

"And when Ronaldo comes, he [will] invest time back into them showing them what an A-Lister; what a genuine superstar; an absolute obsessive professional lives and breathes like on a daily basis.

"If those guys aren't sitting there and their mouths aren't watering to be there every day with this guy to see and watch it every day I don't know what's wrong.

"But they will be. I know what Jadon's like, I know what Marcus is like, I don't know Mason as well but I hear he's an absolute sponge and wants to be educated.

"[TO] these kids, this is the best opportunity that they could've had. Just him coming in the door is enough to break the bank for these three players alone."
