Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has appeared to reveal that he reached out to Arsene Wenger about joining bitter rivals Arsenal when he left Old Trafford in 2014.

The now-retired centre-back eventually moved to Queens Park Rangers but made just 11 appearances under Harry Redknapp before the club suffered relegation to the Championship.

Ferdinand, now a television pundit with BT Sport and keen to get into coaching, replied to a question on Twitter by saying: “I did reach out to Mr Wenger!”
