Barcelona are lining up a £20million end-of-season swoop for United defender Patrice Evra. The Spanish giants have made several trips to Old Trafford to monitor the Frenchman’s form and fitness.

Although Evra signed a new four-year deal worth £70,000 a week only last season, he has been tempted in the past by the interest of Real Madrid and Barca. And while Alex Ferguson rates him highly, he might be tempted by a £20m offer for a left-back.

Gap

The United boss has hopes for the Brazilian twins Rafael and Fabio Da Silva and sees them as his long-term full-back partners. That could persuade Fergie to cash in on first-choice Evra as he freshens up his squad.

Barca want Evra to fill the gap left by his French compatriot Eric Abidal, who is in the final two years of his contract at the Nou Camp.

I hope Evra's not on his way out of OT! While the twins are great players they haven't got the experience that Evra has!

There are many players I would sell before I even thought about selling Evra.

Evra is a great player but you've got to look at 20m for a left back.

Look at the cost of replacing him a player of Evra's class of which i can't think of anyone better will cost us close to £20m as Full backs seem to becoming more expensive every year. Probably as they are now the attacking width of teams and good ones are hard to find. Dani Alves, Bosingwa, Ramos, Abidal all cost around £20m and none are as good as Evra.

If Fabio is considered the real deal then maybe but he needs at least another season if Fabio came in for a spell and did fantastically well then maybe selling Evra would make some sense but at the moment i'd say no. We don't need the money and the cost of a replacement would be too hight as he is the best LB in the world. Why make our rivals even stronger than they already are unless they're prepared to offer crazy money £30m + or trade players

I wouldn't say we don't need the money, every club needs money and 20m for a left back is a good price.

I'm not saying we should sell him, I'd be more gutted if he went than I would if MLP went. But at 20m you've got to look at that, perhaps we could swap him for Messi

I wouldn't say it's a good price for arguably the best LB in the world he's an important part of our side and considering he'd need replacing with a better player we'd probably end up spending more than £20m to get one.

Abidal 15m Euros
Ramos 27m Euros
Alves 29m Euros
Bosingwa 16m pound

Bearing in mind the exchange rate at the time all of those are sub £20m pound. And I'm not massively knowledable of these players but Alves was being touted as the best, Bosingwa looks good.

I don't think you're understanding me, I'm not saying sell him, I'm saying at 20m it's worth a look. If the boy is looking like he might be ready next year, maybe we can get by with O'shea for a season or something. I would understand if Sir thought about it, thats all. Especially if, as the article says, Evra is keen on a move.

Where in the article does it say he's keen on a move. The only thing the article says is he signed a new 4 year deal last season which to me suggests he didn't want to go anywhere. I thought Abidal was considerable more than 15m euro's i though it was 24m euro's and to be fair the guy is aweful.

Actually it says he was tempted by Madrid and Barca, so I might have over egged a bit. I seem to remember him swinging the lead a bit when his deal was up though, probably his agent.

Juding by those prices though 20m would seem like a good offer. We have to assume da silva is up to the job, judging by all the hype etc. So it's just one of those decisions a manager has to take. Is it worth the gamble. Do you want to change the squad to keep it fresh?

I hope he doesn't go, he's my 2nd favourite player but everyone has a price.

Rubbish..SAF is more concerned about knocking liverpool off their f**king perch than gaining a mere 20m... the twins are talented but need a few more years minimum to be as good on either side as Evra is on the left esp defensively. This is agent talk maybe trying to get Evra a raise at most..or just plain paper talk. SAF wants to win the ECL twice if possible in the next 2 years and selling your best full back just doesn't equate. He'll leave that for the next manager to worry about imo.

They might have won the Carling Cup, but is nutrition all it could be at Manchester United?

Club channel MUTV’s new cookery show Red Devils’ Kitchen last week asked defender Patrice Evra to create a dish containing two live lobsters.

And while he did it, the club’s chef asked: "Is there any kind of eating ritual you have before the match?"

Replied our Pat: "No, not really. Well... before every big match I usually go to Burger King or McDonald’s", adding “Burger King – very good for hamstring!”
