One Centre Back Too Many?

One Centre Back Too Many?

Having signed Phil Jones, from Blackburn, for a cool £16.5 million there`s every chance that the pecking order, with regards to centre backs, has changed at Old Trafford.

We`d imagine that Vidic and Ferdinand are the two natural starters Jones and Smalling looking to slip into action if either are injured or suspended.

Which leaves Jonny Evans, we`d imagine, looking a little worried. Therefore, we have to ask is this the reason that the Wolves manager, Mick McCarthy could be eyeing a move up for the Northern Ireland international.

We believe that Evans is only twelve months into a four year deal and that some sources are inferring that Evans may move to Wolves on a loan deal but we wouldn`t be that surprised if the twenty-three year old was off on his travels shortly!

Jonny Evans is good cover not only at CB but Lb also. I'd be shocked if he were to leave and not be replaced, especially with our defensive injury record in recent years.

superwwfc, when Rio's injury problems first started and Evans was brought in to cover him he really showcased his potential and looked to be a brilliant defender. Last ditch tackles, goal line clearances, good headers, etc, etc, and the more confident he grew in himself the better he got. Since then though, whilst he's still a good competent player he can be a bit of a liability at the back. His been played at LB more recently and he was actually quite good there, not your typical modern LB but a decent one all the same. If it's a loan deal i'm all for it, if it's a transfer then i'd prefer it if Fergie told Wolves to look elsewhere.

Evans has always done well for us when called upon, it will be a shame if we do sell him I've always thought he had the potential to be a world class centre back.
