Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged Jose Mourinho to move for Douglas Costa.

Ferdinand, reportedly, is a big fan of the Bayern Munich midfielder.

“I admire Douglas Costa of Bayern Munich,” he told The Times.

“He’s an electric player with pedigree who is not always in Bayern’s starting line-up and he’d be worth paying big money for. United have always played with wingers and you’ve got Ibrahimovic to feed in the air.

“But most of all, the team needs legs.”
