Antonio Rudiger

Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker has urged the club to move for Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger.

Rudiger is yet to sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge despite his current deal ending in the summer with a chunk of clubs in Europe watching the development with the aim of roping him in the summer.

While Parker acknowledged Rudiger’s importance at Stamford Bridge, he believes he could make a huge impact at Old Trafford.

“If he was to stay at Chelsea. He’s very influential and the fans idolize him. To come to Manchester United, I would say that is ambitious. I would understand why he would want to and I think he would make a difference.’

“If you had him next to Varane, what a difference you’re talking about. Good pace and you’re talking about someone who’s won a World Cup, Champions League, and then you’ve got a center-half, who in the old-school way of talking is actually a leader.

“He actually shouts and screams, bosses people about, dictates the people. When people aren’t doing it, he tells them because he doesn’t make that many mistakes himself. He keeps things simple. He’d be absolutely perfect,” Parker said as quoted by the Daily Mail.

United have struggled at the back this season, conceding 26 goals already in the Premier League. Only Aston Villa and Leicester City have let in more inside the top 10 in the table.
