Manchester United’s summer clear out continues, with Sky Sports News claiming that Jonny Evans is on his way to West Brom after the two clubs agreed a fee thought to be in the region of £6million plus £2million in add-ons and bonuses depending on performance.
Shortly after that news broke last night, The Telegraph confirmed that the Northern Irishman had already undergone his medical in the Black Country, and the deal could go through very shortly.
If this sale goes through, it’ll take Manchester United’s net spend to exactly nothing this summer – meaning Louis van Gaal has certainly shifted a lot of deadwood and cleared an awful lot of money off the wage bill.
Its a shame to see Jonny Evans go. He’s been at United all his career and he looked like a real prospect in his first few years, sadly it didn’t quite work out after that. The true United fans will wish him well though.
