Rio Ferdinand: Hoping to land a new contract at Manchester United

Speculation in England has suggested that Ferdinand was sounded out about the possibility of a summer switch some months back.

The vastly-experienced centre-half is due to be out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season and has been linked with moves to various clubs.

He has, however, expressed a desire to stay on at United after helping them to the 2012/13 Premier League title, and Flamengo insist they have no intention of making a move.

Director of football Paulo Pelaipe told Lancenet: "I haven't talked to anybody about it, and the board haven't told me anything on the subject."

Vice-president Wallim Vasconcellos told Radio Tupi: "There is nothing about Rio Ferdinand."

Vasconcellos has also sought to distance Flamengo from rumours claiming that they are preparing a bid to bring Brazil international Cesar back to his homeland - on the back of QPR's relegation out of the Premier League.

He added: "Julio Cesar is a great goalkeeper and could play for any team, but he is not one of our concerns right now."

PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
