Rio Ferdinand became a Manchester United great after early difficulties

The ESPN FC crew react to the retirement announcement of former England international Rio Ferdinand.

Nilmar paused to think. The striker who once scored a winner for Brazil vs. England had been asked to name the best player he'd ever played against. "Rio Ferdinand for Manchester," he eventually replied. "I played against him for Lyon. He's fast, and his positioning was perfect."

It was the 2007-08 season when Nilmar came up against Ferdinand, who announced his retirement on Saturday after playing his final season for QPR. The central defender was at his peak as Manchester United won the European...

Man United could use a full-back like Denis Irwin

The ESPN FC crew discuss Manchester United's Angel Di Maria in the latest #PremRank, where Shaka Hislop believes with time, he will make an impact at Old Trafford.

One of Manchester United's best-ever defenders, Rio Ferdinand, has just announced his retirement from professional football, while the club is currently looking for an elite player to occupy the right-back role. United's back four is in transition, and it feels timely to reflect upon some of those greats who have graced it before.

One of those is Denis Irwin. When discussing the finest full-backs to have played the game, it seems his name is often overlooked -- which is, in itself, strangely fitting....

Man Utd goalkeepers -- David De Gea key, but will Valdes replace him?

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether or not Victor Valdes can be Manchester United's top goalkeeper should David De Gea leave this summer, but Shaka Hislop does not feel the 33-year-old is capable of handling the starting goalkeeper duties.

With Manchester United's season now over, thoughts have now firmly turned to the recruitments to be made over the summer.

Every day this week we'll be analysing a different area of the squad -- we start with the goalkeepers.

Sum up the goalkeeping situation at the club

The current and undisputed No. 1 at Old Trafford is David De Gea, but it is unclear how much longer that will be the case. He is arguably one of the top three goalkeepers in the world, and his excellence has drawn the attention of...

As the majority of the world's leagues ready for the season's end, the rumours continue to pick up steam. Things are starting to get real, transfer fans.

United to steal Saints star from under Arsene's nose?

Chelsea risked looking the fools by re-signing Nemanja Matic for £21 million last year having swapped him and £25 million for David Luiz three years previous, but the Blues are laughing now with a world-class defensive midfielder in their Premier League title-winning side.
