Patrice Evra has blasted Manchester United’s decision to sign Donny van de Beek and believes the midfielder ‘is not needed’ at the club.

Premier League
Granit Xhaka has hit back at Patrice Evra’s ‘bulls***’ claims after he referred to Arsenal players as ‘my babies’ in the wake of their 1-0 defeat against Sheffield United.

Evra played with Dybala in Turin for a year-and-a-half after the former Palermo forward joined the club in 2015, with the ex-United left-back joining Marseille on a free transfer 18 months later. ...
