Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has slammed young English stars as “overpriced” in a Twitter outburst over Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling.
Ferdinand’s former club United have been linked with Kane this summer, despite the striker maintaining that he wants to remain at Tottenham Hotspur.
Having retired from professional football, the former England centre-half took to Twitter to voice his concern over the figures touted in today’s press surrounding the two most-wanted attackers in the country.
Despite voicing frustration over the value of these young stars, Ferdinand himself was the most expensive British footballer in history upon his move to Old Trafford, moving for roughly £34million.
Kane has been adamant that his future lies with Spurs, however in an age of modern football such figures could transpire for the youngster in upcoming summers.
