Rio Ferdinand has hailed AC Milan star and Chelsea transfer target Rafael Leao as a special player.
Leao was on top form as Milan recorded a 1-0 Champions League last-16 first leg victory against Tottenham at the San Siro on Tuesday night.
“I think what’s great about him is that he can change the rhythm of the game,” said Ferdinand.
“The game was played at his pace, he can run about and then walk with the ball. If you can do that at the highest level, that tells me that there is something special there.
“I think he’s got enough there for teams to say ‘you know that I would like that at my disposal’. He’s doing that in a struggling team this year as well.”
