Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Chelsea starlet Levi Colwill is already better than big-money signings Wesley Fofana and Benoit Badiashile.

Fofana joined Chelsea last summer from Leicester City for £70million while Badiashile joined from Monaco in January for £35million.

Chelsea have shipped 41 goals in 36 league games this season while Colwill has impressed on loan at Brighton.

Asked whether United could possibly make a move for the Blues youngster this summer, Ferdinand told VIBE: “We ain’t getting him, he’s at Chelsea. They ain’t going to sell him.

“I think he is the best one they’ve got at Chelsea. He’s better than Fofana and I think he’s better than Badiashile.

“Have you seen the way he is playing for Brighton? He has gone to Brighton, his team is higher than Chelsea.

“He is playing unbelievably well in that team. Did you see the way he was slapping that ball around yesterday [on Sunday against Arsenal]?

“This season, Collwill has been better than Fofana and Badiashile. 100 per cent.”
