The former Manchester United centre-back made the comment this morning as the transfer deadline day action starts to heat up.
I love watching #transferdeadlineday unfold! A few stocking fillers will happen but No deal over £10m will be done today!— Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) February 2, 2015
I'd love to see a monster deal shatter my last tweet though, pure excitement! #transferdeadlineday— Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) February 2, 2015
It is very tough to say what will and will not happen on transfer deadline day, especially in the Premier League, but the early signs are that Ferdinand’s prediction may not come true.
The Premier League leaders are keen on signing Colombia international Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina today, according to ESPN.
Chelsea were reportedly expected to announce the signing of the winger for a transfer fee of £26.8 million, but the deal is being held up by Wolfsburg’s negotiation with the Blues over the signing of Andre Schurrle.
If the Cuadrado deal does go through, then Ferdinand’s prediction about deadline day would fall flat.
