Rio Ferdinand has revealed he had no intention in leaving United earlier in his career despite interest from Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Rio Ferdinand has revealed he ignored interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona during his Manchester United career as he wanted to win trophies at Old Trafford.

The former England international joined QPR this summer after 12 years with the Red Devils but has revealed that he received interest from the Spanish giants, as well as Serie A side Roma but never seriously considered leaving the Premier League side.

"I spoke to Roma and also there was interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona at one time," he told The Express.

 "But when I was at Manchester United and there was interest from other clubs I was winning things at Manchester United. So my head was never turned to go anywhere else."

Ferdinand won six Premier League titles and appeared in three Champions League finals during his time with United and also said that winning silverware was all he was concerned about.

 

"If Gareth Bale had been at Manchester United and winning trophies he wouldn't have gone to Real Madrid. I was just turned on by winning. I wasn't interested in going anywhere else."
