Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has identified West Ham United’s Lucas Paqueta as the player Manchester City should sign to temporarily replace playmaker, Kevin de Bruyne.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has already confirmed that De Bruyne will be out of action for three to four months due to a recurring hamstring injury.
However, Ferdinand believes Man City should bring Paqueta to the Etihad this summer transfer window to get them goals because they have already lost the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan.
“I am worried for City, If you are a City fan you have to be devastated,” Ferdinand told TNT Sports regarding De Bruyne’s injury.
“I think they have got to go and find someone who can get goals. They have lost Mahrez, they’ve lost Gundogan, and they’ve now lost Kevin de Bruyne – three massive, influential players in terms of goals and assists. Let’s see who they go with. I am saying Paqueta,” he added.
