Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has hinted towards a potential return to Old Trafford for Patrice Evra.
The Frenchman left for Juventus back in 2014 after six years at Man United, signing for a fee of £1.5m.
He has claimed four major honours since arriving in Turn, making 79 appearances at left back in the process.
Ferdinand took to Instragram to canvass the idea of Evra, whose contract ends this summer, returning to work under Jose Mourinho in the future.
Some might say that, at the age of 35, Evra’s best days lie behind him. Whether he could cope with the Premier League’s notoriously physical nature remains uncertain. Then again, Michael Carrick and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – both 35 – haven’t encountered much trouble this season.
His presence at Carrington, above anything, would be invigorating for the entire United side. This is a man who truly understands what it means to play at Old Trafford. He was won everything imaginable at United, and his age certainly didn’t show last year at Juventus, where he made 35 appearances in all competitions, displaying his usual steel and efficiency as Massimiliano Allegri’s side strolled to another title.
It is impossible to not love Evra. His overall persona in the dressing room is inestimably uplifting; he could even make Antonio Valencia smile. But most importantly, he will make you love this game.
