Evra Staying!

Evra Staying!

The inference doing the rounds was that our French defender, Patrice Evra would be leaving Old Trafford this summer.

The belief was that with Southampton`s Luke Shaw set to be one of many big simmer signings, Evra would be joining Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic in exiting Manchester United.

However, that does not now appear so with it being intimated that Evra is set, at the request of Louis van Gaal, to sign on the line for another season, which would make it his 10th season with the club.

How is this news viewed?

Should we keep Evra around to help mentor Shaw or should we have cut the ties?

Your views would be greatly appreciated.

To be honest this worries me. If Shaws deal was announced as done I wouldn't have an issue with Evra being offered a new contract. However, we've seen so many patch jobs done in the last few years, what with bringing Scholes out of retirement to mask the glaring deficiencies in midfield epitomising it, I can't help but have a nagging doubt that this is another one of them, that the club bulked at Shaw because whilst Evra has got a pair of legs he will do.

Hopefully the club proves me wrong and Mark Ogdens comments on MUTV about Shaw being a done deal are spot on.

Maybe Evra's been kept on to captain the side. Sorts the Rooney RVP conundrum straight out can't see it but you never know. Unfortunately if that is the case it probably means Shaw isn't on the way :-(

I can't see why the buck would have to stop at Shaw though, there's plenty of left backs out there Shaw isn't the be all and end all. Alex Sandro and Ricardo Rodriguez are both worthy shouts for the club to sign in the event Shaw deal doesn't happen.
