Manchester United have only acquired the signing of former Ajax player, Donny van de Beek in this transfer window. Jadon Sancho, the Dortmund star has been the top target for but could not manage to close the deal.

The Frenchman explained how the club sends lawyer to negotiate with the players and thus the valuation of the player increases.

He said, “People have to understand we send lawyers to talk with the player. They talk about numbers, not people from the football world.”

He added, “When you want a player who cost 20 million, he ends up costing 100 million… but even those players, they don’t even want our money anymore.”


The 39-year-old spoke about former gaffer, Sir Alex Ferguson, and Chief Executive, David Gill’s tenure at the club. He claimed the historical signings of Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Robin Van Persie, Patrice Evra were all rapid signings.

Patrice Evra said that Ed Woodward has a problem of trusting the wrong people, that he should not.

The Frenchman said, “The only problem I would say to Ed is trusting people he should never trust. He even trusts people outside the club that he shouldn’t. That’s what I can say about Ed.”

The former defender slammed the transfer negotiator, Matt Judge claiming that he is unreachable and sporting directors of other club asks him to pass the message.

Patrice Evra concluded saying, “I know some people are scared to speak up about because they may not get a job in the future, I don’t care, I don’t need Manchester United. I love Manchester United.”

Manchester United are yet to make a signing apart from the Dutch star as the transfer window deadline on October 5 is around the corner. The Red Devils endured a shocking 3-1 home defeat against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
