Metro have Manchester United fans looking more than a little bit stunned here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it seems Patrice Evra could well be set for a swift return to Manchester United.
The news is shocking at best and as our regulars note, it is certainly a surprise considering the amount of money the Red Devils shelled out on Luke Shaw this past summer and we cannot see the young left back being thrilled with the idea.
It is of course only six months since Evra left the club for Juventus and it seems that whilst the 33-year-old may be struggling to secure a regular first team berth with the Old Lady, we think that United could certainly do with his experience at the back.
This is not to mention his defensive abilities with the Red Devils often struggling to close out tight fixtures so far this season.
Our regulars are split on the idea of bringing Evra back to Old Trafford with some seeing it as a backwards step, not to mention many fully believing that Luke Shaw will make the left back berth his own for years to come.
Manchester United fans. Would you entertain a transfer to bring Evra back to Old Trafford? Has Luke Shaw underwhelmed you since his summer switch from Southampton? Let us know your thoughts below.
