Manchester United are considering re-signing former Red Devil Jonny Evans, in a cut-price deal worth just £3million.
That’s what Neil Custis writes in an exclusive for The Sun, with the club considering the possibility of reacquiring the man who they let go for £6million in 2015.
With West Bromwich Albion set for relegation, Evans has a clause in his contract in which a club can buy him for a meagre £3million; no doubt a whole host of sides will be interested in acquiring the central defender.
Don’t forget, just last summer Manchester City had an £18million bid for Evans rejected, now The Baggies will have to settle for a fee one-sixth of that, less than twelve months later.
At 30, Evans would bring some much-needed experience to a relatively young back line, but I wouldn’t like to see him start every single game. As a squad player, fine, but remember, there was a reason he was allowed to leave Old Trafford. There was a reason why he ended up at perennial relegation battlers West Brom.
With that said, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Jose Mourinho make his move for the man from Northern Ireland, and I’m sure the transfer would be met with mixed views if it went through.
