Video: Rio Ferdinand issues strange plea to David de Gea on social media
Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has recorded a special message for Real Madrid-bound goalkeeper David De Gea, telling him: "Please don't go!"
Ferdinand posted this video this morning to his Instagram account, reaching out to the Spanish goalkeeper by booming out the 1992 dance classic "Please Don't Go" by Double You while sitting in his car.
The 36-year-old Ferdinand spent 12 years at Old Trafford, winning six league titles, one Champions League, three League cups and a Fifa Club World Cup.
De Gea has been strongly linked with a move back to Spain to play for Real Madrid this summer to replace Iker Casillas, who has moved to Porto.
