It seems Jonny Evans has made one mistake too many now with our resident Red Devils having ran out of patience with the error-prone performances of their Northern Ireland international defender.
Evans has of course been something of a long-term stalwart at Old Trafford having made his debut back in 2006 but has he really turned into somebody who gives United fans the assurance that they’ve got the next Rio Ferdinand or Nemanja Vidic in their ranks?
The simple answer is no.
While Evans can be considered a good defender at best, he is certainly not a great one and with Louis van Gaal having now had time to assess his playing squad’s performances over the course of the season, perhaps Evans is one who will be subject to the chop.
van Gaal is a ruthless manager and if you believe what you read in the press, Aston Villa are readying a £10 million bid for his services.
United fans would snap your hand off for this deal to happen while reinvesting the money into a transfer for either Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels or Valencia’s Nicolas Otamendi.
