Manchester United have told any interested party that they can sign Jonny Evans this summer, but only if they offer £12m, according to the Daily Express.
The Northern Ireland international is well down the pecking order at Old Trafford, having not been included in any of Louis van Gaal’s matchday squads so far this season, and it now appears that his substitute appearance against Crystal Palace in the latter stages of the last campaign may prove to be his final game for the Red Devils.
The Express report that Everton and West Brom are interested in a potential deal for the 27-year-old, but also note that the price tag that United have set may put the pair off.
The Toffees’ stance may change if they end up losing key man John Stones. The Guardian claim that champions Chelsea are plotting a £40m bid for the 21-year-old, which would leave Roberto Martinez with a serious problem in terms of options, but also, a serious amount of money available to rectify the situation.
