Swansea defender Ashley Williams was last night spotted at Old Trafford with his agent as he attended Rio Ferdinand’s testimonial.
Rio and Ashley share the same management agency and is a good friend of Ferdinand’s, so it may simply have been a case of the Welshman coming to visit for that reason.
But United have strongly been linked with a move for a centre back this summer with Ferdinand edging towards retirement and Vidic’s injury problems leaving cause for concern. Ezequiel Garay’s protracted move never materialised but with bags of Premier League experience, Williams would not find it difficult to settle at Old Trafford.
The fact that he shares the same agent as Ferdinand would suggest that if Moyes was to move for Williams, it could easily happen but there are much bigger prerogatives than bringing in a new centre back into the team and I would rather see Jones, Smalling and Evans given the game time.
