Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin would be a "good addition" to Louis van Gaal's squad.
Linked with a possible move to Old Trafford, the 25-year-old was also a target for Arsenal but reports have claimed that the Gunners are no longer interested.
"He's a player who's going to add something to Manchester United," Ferdinand is quoted as saying by Goal.com.
"A bit of steel, can pass the ball, can play the ball through the lines of midfield and get the ball from back to front.
"He's a good player and a good addition to the squad, especially if someone like [Michael] Carrick, who's so influential for Man United, gets injured.
"This guy can step in and help buffer that. He's a very good player."
