Man United consider re-signing former Old Trafford stalwart for bargain price

Jonny Evans spent eleven years with United before he was sold to West Brom in 2015

Jose Mourinho is getting the band back together.

Man United are considering re-signing Jonny Evans for £3million this coming summer.

The former Old Trafford centre-back was on United’s book for eleven years from 2004 – 2015 before he was sold to West Brom by Louis van Gaal.

Is his old locker still available?

Sir Alex Ferguson, a huge admirer of Evans, admitted he was ‘stunned’ when the Northern Ireland international was sold in 2015.

The 30-year-old has been the Baggies best player over the last three years and the club have fought hard to retain him up to this point.

Leicester had a £10m bid turned down last August and Man City had an £18m offer rejected shortly after.

There was then interest from Arsenal in the New Year, with a proposed offer of £10m plus full-back Mathieu Debuchy falling on deaf ears.

However, with West Brom doomed to relegation, Premier League clubs have been alerted to Evans’ release clause.

The three-time Premier League champion can go for £3m once Albion’s fate is sealed.

That now seems certain with the club eight points adrift of safety at the bottom with three games left.

Despite United’s impressive defensive record this season, Mourinho is reportedly keen on bolstering his backline when the transfer window opens.

Evans came through United’s academy and spent nine seasons there as a pro, and two as a youth player, playing 198 first-team games.

He won three Premier League titles, two League Cups and the Club World Cup during his time with the club.

If he’s bringing back the old guard how about that fella at Real Madrid, Cristiano something?
