Good news: Man United set to hand ‘Sir Alex’s treasure’ Jonny Evans a one-year deal

The 35-year-old Northern Irishman has returned to United on a short-term basis and has impressed Erik ten Hag with his play in preseason.

Evans’ contract expires at the start of the 2023-24 season, thus Ten Hag will have to decide whether or not to keep him on for the coming year.

The Belfast Telegraph reports that United have decided to sign Evans to a one-year contract. The decision was reportedly taken by Dutch manager Ten Hag.

After the relegation of Leicester City from the Premier League last season, Evans was released this summer.

He spent his formative years at United, from 2006 to 2015, making 198 appearances for the club before leaving for West Brom and then Leicester. He spent the last five years there before returning to United.

Evans helped increase the team’s depth, as you noted, and I agree that the younger players benefited from his presence. What ten Hag stated last week regarding Evans.Because not all of our international players could make it, we learned a lot about how to distribute work among them.

Jonny is motivated to maintain his physical health and professional standing. I thought he played well against Lyon and could tell he was helping guide the younger players on the team.

I believe he was challenging the team’s younger players, which may be very beneficial.

Real Sociedad make formal contact with Man Utd for Donny van de Beek

Fabrizio Romano says that Real Sociedad has reached out to Manchester United about a possible deal for Donny van de Beek.

The Dutch player has been with the club for the past three years, but he has only played 60 times in all categories.

Since coming back from knee surgery, Van de Beek has shown promise, but it looks like United are still open to the idea of letting him go this summer.

Romano says that Sociedad has started talking with the Red Devils about the 26-year-old player after talking with the player last week.

The clubs are talking about how the deal will work, but a move would depend on what United wants.

Van de Beek is set to leave Man Utd.Van de Beek came back against Lyon last month after being out for a long time with a knee ιnjury. The first time he played, he scored the winning goal with a beautiful shot in the box.

Since then, the Dutch player has played in two more friendly games for United. He only played a few minutes against Real Madrid, but then he helped out twice against Borussia Dortmund.

Even so, United could still let him go this summer. Van de Beek has had trouble keeping up with the level of play in the Premier League. He hasn’t helped the team reach its goals.

After they bought Mason Mount, it doesn’t look like he’ll be able to make the starting lineup.

In the number eight spot, Mount and Christian Eriksen are likely to play about the same amount of time.

The number 10 spot, on the other hand, has already been taken by Bruno Fernandes. He is now the team captain, so he has to play every minute of every league game.

So, we won’t be surprised if United gets rid of Van de Beek, who they bought from Ajax for £35 million.

With only two years left on his contract, it might be time to let him go. David Silva’s retirement has left a spot open at Sociedad, and Van de Beek could take it.


Most likely, the Champions League team will want to sign him on loan, but United should ask for a buy-back clause if he plays a certain number of games.
