Man Utd transfer round-up: Jonny Evans admirers, Paul Pogba exit advice

Manchester United may not have seen the back of the Paul Pogba saga as the Frenchman continues to be linked with the exit door.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues in his attempts to guide United back to the summit of English football.

Those ambitions were dealt a blow by a poor summer transfer window that saw the club miss out on several of their top targets.

A winger and a centre-half remain on Solskjaer’s shopping list.

The Norwegian has also proved that, whilst he originially wanted to target youth, adding the right type of experience can certainly be of value.

With that in mind we take a look at the latest rumours involved the Red Devils.

Jonny Evans is a regular at Leicester

Jonny Evans is seen as a potential signing as United eye another centre-half.

The Northern Irishman came up through the ranks at Old Trafford.

He was eventually shipped out to West Brom but has furthered his reputation following a move to Leicester.

Now both Solskjaer and his assistant Mike Phelan feel as if the player could be an ideal fit.

A source told The Sun as saying: “Johnny’s name has come up in conversation.

“There are still a lot of people here who have plenty of time for him – and that includes Ole and Mike Phelan.”

Pogba’s Man Utd advice

Paul Pogba has been told to leave Old Trafford if his heart is not in by the club’s former player Andrei Kanchelskis.

The Frenchman has expressed a desire to leave in the past with both Real Madrid and Juventus touted as potential destinations.

“Pogba is always talking about leaving Manchester United, so for me it would be better if you just left,” he said.

“If you’re saying every time ‘I don’t like this, I don’t like, I want to leave’ then just leave. Go. Leave. No problem.

“Of course [Mino] Raiola is a huge problem, he’s always saying that Pogba is not happy at Manchester United.

“If you want to come and play for Manchester United, you need to open your heart, play 100%. It’s a shame as Pogba is a great player.”

Haaland’s soaring price

Erling Haaland has already slipped through United’s clutches once and they now face an uphill task trying to sign him.

The Norwegian burst onto the scene with Red Bull Salzburg and eventually moved to Borussia Dortmund.

Solskjaer though he was leading the queue to sign Haaland before his switch to Germany.

He has continued his stunning form which has only seen his value soar making any transfer massively demanding, especially in the current financial climate.

The CIES Football Observatory have calculated that the striker is worth a huge £140million.
