Rio Ferdinand has stirred up speculation linking Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri with a move to Old Trafford by comparing him to Eric Cantona.

Alex Ferguson has been linked with a move for the player, who may plug the creative gap left by Paul Scholes’ retirement.

Nasri is yet to rule out a move to Old Trafford, saying: “Do I want to go to Man United? First, we should see if it’s real and if it is concrete.”

And Ferdinand has pointed to the record of French stars in the Premier League as a reason why he would welcome his arrival.

“Samir Nasri is an excellent player who has a good technique and a huge amount of talent,” said Ferdinand. “And he scores goals.

“For me, he is one of the best players right now. I think he even won the title of best French football player at international level.

“The French have a history of good players here. Thierry Henry has been fantastic. Just like Cantona. And let’s not forget Marcel Desailly.”
