New Manchester United manager David Moyes has yet to make his first signing, but the rumour mills have linked the Premier League champions to Borussia Dortmund's Robert Lewandowski and Barcelona's Cesc Fabregas.

Ferdinand told The Sun that the path to success was a proven one at Old Trafford, a chance no ambitious player should turn away.

"If United come in for you, you take it. Even if you are a great player you become a better one at this club. Cristiano Ronaldo became the best player in the world having come from Sporting Lisbon," he pointed out.

"The likes of Ryan Giggs, Roy Keane, David Beckham, Andy Cole all became great players at United. With this platform you cannot believe anyone would ever turn it down."

The central defender also believed that all aspiring players should look to go somewhere which would provide them with consistent opportunities to win trophies.

"If you have ambition, your aim has to be to make a name for yourself at a top club," Ferdinand said.

"As a player aged between say 23 and 27 that is what you should be looking at. It shows you are going somewhere and want to win trophies."
