Rio Ferdinand latest: Former Manchester United defender's move to QPR 'could be off'
Premier League newcomers 're-thinking salary offer', according to reports
Thursday 03 July 2014
Former Manchester United and England defender Rio Ferdinand may not be on his way to Queens Park Rangers because the Premier League newcomers are re-considering his wage offer.
The 35-year-old, who is part of the BBC's World Cup team, had agreed to move to Loftus Road on a salary worth less than a third of the £200,000-per-week deal he was getting at Old Trafford.
But QPR, according to the Daily Mail, are believed to have had an eleventh hour re-think over the terms offered to Ferdinand.
Harry Redknapp is still hopeful of a deal for the defender with senior officials working on a resolution.
The club are keen not to repeat the mistakes of their last spell in the top flight, where they signed a number of over the hill stars on huge contracts.
Ferdinand is believed to be keen on a return to London, where he would have been reunited with Redkanpp, the man who gave him his debut as a teenager at West Ham.
