Manchester United Want This Player Reunion?

One of the most surprising transfer news is the interest of Manchester United in Leicester City defender Jonny Evans.

The Northern Ireland international was a former Manchester United player and reports claimed that the Red Devils want him to return to the club in the nearest future.

The Sun claimed that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is interested in re-signing him.

The possible signing of Jonny Evans won’t have been envisaged by the Old Trafford supporters who have been linked with world class defensive options like Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly, RB Leipzig player Dayot Upamecano in recent months.

From the point of view of Solskjaer and Manchester United, Jonny Evans could be available for free next summer and the signing of the 32-year-old represents a cheap option to sign defensive reinforcements in addition to the fact that he’s playing the best football of his club career with the Foxes.

However, on the other side of things, Jonny Evans is ageing and won’t really give Manchester United more than two or three years of football at the highest level.

In addition, the Manchester United fans would rather go for a new signing than opt for a player that really didn’t hit the heights during his Manchester United days.

Jonny Evans came through the youth teams at the Theatre of Dreams before making his first appearance for the club in 2006 having joined the Red Devils as a teenager two years earlier.

The centre back didn’t become a regular part of the Manchester United first team until the 2008/09 season.

Evans won a lot of trophies while he was a Manchester United player and has failed to win a single trophy since leaving the club for Midlands club West Brom in 2015 while Dutch tactician Louis Van Gaal was at the club.

During his time at Old Trafford, Jonny Evans won three league titles and two Capital One Cup trophies. He found the back of the net seven times in his 198 appearances for the club.

Jonny Evans was a key player for the Baggies during his three-year stay at the Hawthorns and his departure was certainly felt as the Baggies spent just one more season before dropping out of the Premier League though they have since gained promotion to the league after one season in the second tier.

Jonny Evans left West Brom for Leicester City in 2018 and his contract with the Foxes will expire next summer. He’s a key player at Leicester City but his future at the club is unclear at the moment thus paving the way for Manchester United to sign him potentially at the end of his Leicester City contract.

What Roy Keane said to Dean Henderson revealed

Published

on

The Red Devils legend Roy Keane has spoken of the dangers for goalkeeper Dean Henderson if he continues to stay with Man United without regular playing time.

Roy Keane argues that a promising goalkeeper like the England international needs to be seen regularly in games and that might not be given to him at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils legend is not the first to make such a claim, as England national team manager Gareth Southgate already gave his advice by stating that Dean Henderson must secure regular playing time at his club before he can stand the chance of playing for the country.

Dean Henderson had made attempts to leave Manchester United but the club’s chiefs are not ready to lose a player with such top quality and ended up securing a new and improved deal for him to remain at the club.

The 23-year-old will only have the opportunity of stepping in between the sticks if David de Gea picks up an injury as the Spanish goalkeeper has been established as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s number one.

According to Roy Keane, a player who starred in two loan spells at Sheffield United deserves better than a second choice goalkeeper at the Old Trafford as he laments that there are no chances he would be leaving anytime soon after signing a new deal at the club.

Keane said “It’s a nightmare scenario for him. He wants to play for Man United, of course, he does. Being in goal for Sheffield United and Man United every week is completely different, but he had to go back. Ole wanted to see him and work with him closely. You want to get better by playing the games, you can do all the training sessions you want, but if you’re not playing every week, the kid’s going to go backwards – and that’s going to cost him, ultimately.

“For example, if [Jordan] Pickford has a difficult spell – which he always seems to be, in my eyes – then it’s probably difficult for Gareth [Southgate] to go and pick a goalkeeper who’s not playing regularly.

“It’s a difficult situation for Henderson. Come January, do United really want to let him go out on loan. I don’t think so, because then they need cover for De Gea in case something happens to him.”

Meanwhile, Dean Henderson will remain a major part of the England national team as his reputation speaks well for him.

Manchester United planning move for 23-year-old attacking midfielder

Published

on

Manchester United are long-term suitors of Bournemouth versatile midfielder David Brooks and they are already planning to bring him to Old Trafford to beat other interested clubs.

The Red Devils might be planning for the departure of France international Paul Pogba with this move as the World Cup winner is obviously unhappy.

The former Juventus midfielder has also fueled speculations of his move away from Old Trafford on several occasions, alongside his representatives with Real Madrid and Juventus considering the option of cashing in on him.

Man United have succeeded in extending the contract of the France international to the summer of 2021 but that does not mean he would not leave the club if he desires and the right offer is tabled.

The 23-year-old is no doubt an interesting talent that could fill the gap and also prove to be a future of the club knowing that he is very much younger.

David Brooks was out of action in most of the games last season due to injury as he had just nine games which can be traced t why the Cherries suffered relegation to the Championship.

Missing out of action in most games last season does not rule out David Brooks as a great player and that has not reduced the interest in him by several Premier League clubs.

Liverpool are also believed to be interested in the signature of David Brooks, alongside Everton and Leicester City with his return to the top flight being discussed.

His quality was hailed and confirmed by Man United legend Ryan Giggs who claims the 23-year-old has all it takes to play at the biggest stage.

“He wasn’t available for the first game, but it was great for him to join up later in the week and start the second game,” said Giggs. “He’s a very talented player. He ended the season playing a lot of games, but it’s a long time out.

“I’ve seen there’s speculation about a lot of players. Brooksy’s obviously a talented player and now Bournemouth are in the Championship. I’ve always said it’s better if the lads are playing, and the higher the standard the better as well. But that isn’t always a given.” He added.

David Brooks could be the latest Bournemouth star to part ways with the club as long as the right offer is submitted with Man United keen to land him in the summer transfer window.

Solskjaer given transfer orders

Published

Man United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has reportedly given an order to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to offload a trio of players if he must land a new central defender.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been keen on a central defender to partner Harry Maguire after he failed to invest in that area in the last summer transfer window. Now they have reportedly set their eyes on Jules Kounde from Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla.

The Red Devils have been told that Jules Kounde will cost them a £60 m fee which means they will have to cash in from the sale of some players before anything positive can happen.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has, therefore, been instructed by Ed Woodward to do away with three out-of-favour players at Old Trafford.

The club outcast, Sergio Romero tops the list alongside Phil Jones. There are assurances that the first duo could leave before the end of the transfer deadline.

Jules Kounde is also on the radar of other clubs like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Juventus which means Man United must do more to be able to land him.

Sergio Romero has already told the club he wants to leave after going down the pecking order.

He was stopped from a move to Everton in the summer and his wife blasted the club for that “Sergio Romero worked hard for his club.

The last trophy they won, they lifted it with him. He helped the team [reach] 4 finals/semifinals, and then he was left on the bench only to lose them all. It is time to return the opportunity and let him go. RESPECT FOR ONCE.” She wrote on her social media page.

“He said to me: ‘Look, now the season is over and everyone has a few days off. Then we go to play the Europa League… I’m not going to count on you because you haven’t trained for four months’.”

He added on his future plans: “My idea is also to try to stay at Estudiantes. I played a game, got injured and all of this happened.

“That is why I will see in September if the loan can be extended and continue for a few more months.”
