Video: Gary Lineker Teases Rio Ferdinand & Man Utd Fans Over Ajax’s Matthijs de Ligt

Gary Lineker has taken the opportunity to cheekily tease Rio Ferdinand – and Manchester United fans – live on BT Sport this evening.

The ex-England striker was in his usual position as the broadcaster’s anchor host for tonight’s Champions League semi-final first-leg between Spurs and Ajax in North London, and he wasn’t afraid to hint at the fact Ferdinand has recently been linked with becoming a sporting director at his former club, Manchester United.

With the Red Devils badly struggling at the back this season, a centre-half will be high on the shopping list, and Ajax’s brilliant teenager Matthijs de Ligt was mentioned as a potential candidate to move to Old Trafford by Lineker.

However, he asked Ferdinand the question in a way which could get United fans thinking – and hoping – that both de Ligt and Ferdinand are on their way to the Theatre of Dreams this summer:

So, would splashing out on de Ligt make all the difference in United’s defence?

And do you reckon Ferdinand could soon be returning to his old team?
