EVANS REVEALS PLAYERS SIR ALEX WOULD TALK ABOUT

Former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has revealed one particular side of the club’s former manager Sir Alex Ferguson that many people may not have known about before.

Sir Alex is considered to be one of the greatest managers of all-time in the world of football for his achievements during his managerial career at Manchester United and there is enough reason to believe those claims, especially given the fact that he singlehandedly took the club to greater heights. He arrived at a time when Liverpool were the best side in the league and made a promise that he was there to get the Reds off their perch.

MAN UNITED EYEING EVANS RETURN

 

Manchester United have been surprisingly linked with former player Jonny Evans who’s on the payroll of fellow Premier League club Leicester City and was at the Theatre of Dreams for 11 years. According to the report from The Sun, the Red Devils want to re-sign the 32-year-old centre back after his Leicester City contract ends at the end of this season. It was reported that Manchester United are ready to pounce on a free transfer next summer with the Foxes reluctant to offer the experienced player a new deal.


Jonny Evans joined Manchester United as a teenager in 2004 and he went on to make his first team debut two years later. The Northern Ireland player didn’t break into the Manchester United squad until the 2008/09 campaign after he had spent some time at clubs like Royal Antwerp FC of Belgium and English team Sunderland on loan. Jonny Evans was with the Manchester United first team for eight seasons before he left the club for West Brom in 2015. He scored seven times in 198 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions and his time at Old Trafford yielded three Premier League titles plus two League Cup titles.

CHELSEA READY TO SIGN ANOTHER AJAX’S STAR

 

Per reports in the English media, Chelsea are set to make an offer for Ajax fullback Nicolas Tagliafico. It is widely expected that manager Frank Lampard would strengthen the left-back position with current options Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri set to be sold in the summer. Lamoard has said in the past that he does not see the duo in his long term plan for the club.

Leicester defender Ben Chilwell is regarded as the first choice for the Blues but there are indications that he could be too expensive with the Foxes valuing the defender at around £70 million. This could force the club to look for less expensive options and Tagliafico has been identified as the perfect fit for the club.

MANCHESTER CITY WOULD LOVE TO SIGN EVANS
