Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is 'happy' Paulo Dybala never joined from Juventus, despite the Argentine linked with a last-minute transfer.
Ferdinand feels Dybala does not 'have the right minerals' to succeed at United, after his alleged reluctance to switch to United led to the club abandoning the chase.
His other potential move to Tottenham broke down with only a few hours to go to the closure of the transfer window.
Ferdinand has now taken a thinly veiled attack at the attacker, saying he should 'start playing some football'.
“A lot of players have declined coming to Man United in recent years. They’ve chosen somewhere else.
“But I don’t know how Dybala had the audacity to turn them down when he’s on the bench at Juventus. He needs to start playing some football.
“Maybe he’s thinking: ‘I want to be Champions League or I’ll sit on the bench. I’d rather do that than play at Man United.’
“Well, I’m happy he didn’t come then because you haven’t got the right minerals that I want in a Man United player!
United were at their clinical best in the opening match of the new Premier League season on Sunday evening, putting four past a hapless Chelsea at the Old Trafford in an encouraging show.
New signings Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka shone, and there was a goal for the other new addition, James, who came off the bench.
