Manchester United centre-back targeted by West Brom

Manchester United’s centre-half pairing of Chris Smalling and Daley Blind has been extremely solid at the start of this season, with the other centre-backs struggling to force their way into the team at present. One player who hasn’t even been in the match day squads despite being fit is Jonny Evans.

It looks inevitable that we’ll sell Jonny Evans this summer, and according to talksPORT, West Brom see him as a replacement for Joleon Lescott as they look to improve their defence before the deadline.

Evans, 27, has been a fantastic servant for Manchester United over the years, but his form has been poor for the last couple of seasons and that looks certain to have cost him his Old Trafford career.

A move for Evans would be the best move for all involved, and perhaps if United’s interest in Saido Berahino is genuine, the clubs could come to some sort of swap deal arrangement that benefits all parties.
