Man Utd fear: Jose Mourinho takes Jonny Evans action as Man City and Arsenal eye transfer Man Utd fear: Jose Mourinho takes Jonny Evans action as Man City and Arsenal eye transfer

MANCHESTER UNITED boss Jose Mourinho has asked to be updated on Jonny Evans’ situation with the West Brom defender wanted by Manchester City and Arsenal.

Manchester United sold Evans to West Brom in the summer of 2015 with former boss Louis van Gaal happy to let the Northern Ireland defender go.

At the time, the Red Devils had Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Tyler Blackett at their disposal.

However, nearly three years on from his departure, the 30-year-old is in demand.

Arsenal and Manchester City both want to sign Evans, who has blossomed at the Hawthorns.

But the Manchester Evening News say Manchester United are not out of the running.

It is said the Red Devils have contacted West Brom and asked to be kept abreast of any developments.

However, a move right now would make little sense.

United still have Smalling, Jones and Rojo in their ranks and their popularity under Mourinho means Evans would likely have to make do with a place on the bench.

The Red Devils also have Victor Lindelof, though the Swede has struggled for form since his arrival from Benfica in the summer.

The Daily Mail say West Ham have also joined Arsenal and City in the race for Evans.

Meanwhile, speaking in March last year, the Northern Ireland star believed he was right to leave United given Van Gaal’s treatment of him.

“There were a lot of decisions at the end with United that were made quite quickly,” Evans said.

“I’m not saying that on behalf of myself, but I was surprised that Michael Keane was sold at the time. Having been in his position myself and come through United’s academy, I was surprised at that one.

“Me, on the other hand, that wasn’t a surprise. I could see the signs.

“I felt like it was the time for that to happen. There was no problem. I was looking forward to a new challenge because I knew that once I got playing again, I could really push on.

“I don’t think I would have ever left the club if I’d had that feeling of ‘What if?’.

“You had Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, two young England centre-backs and Marcos Rojo had come in as a new signing.”
