Jonny Evans set to leave Manchester United

The Northern Irish international has been hotly linked with a move away from Old Trafford for quite some time and it appears that the defender is going to leave the club in the coming days

In what would come as a real shock to most of the United fans, Louis van Gaal has chosen to get rid of Johnny Evans, a player who was a real favourite of Sir Alex Ferguson. Reports claim that the Red Devils have agreed to sell the player to Everton for a fee believed to be in the region of 8.5 million pounds.

Evans, a product of Manchester United’s youth academy, really struggled with injuries in the last two seasons and it appears that the new manager does not believe that he will ever realise his true potential in the coming years and has hence chosen to cash in on a player who would now be looking to make up for lost time once he links up with Roberto Martinez’s side.
