Patrice Evra is expected to return to Manchester United.

But not as a player.

The Sun say club sources expect the Frenchman to return to Old Trafford.

Steven Davis wants to return to Rangers after Ovie Ejaria was sent back to Liverpool.

Davis has played just twice this season for Southampton and is keen to move on and get playing again.

Arsenal are lining up a £40m swoop for Boca Juniors star Cristian Pavon.

Unai Emery needs reinforcements after Danny Welbeck's injury and with Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil's futures uncertain.

According to the Sun Pavon is on the radar.

But the winger will cost around £40m.

Man Utd moves backed

Manchester United need defenders but their current ones have to step up the mark too, says 1999 Champions League winner Henning Berg.

“Everybody knows, and [Jose] Mourinho has said many times, that he wants to buy central defenders and he hasn’t been able to get the ones he wanted to this summer,” Berg said.

“He got the ones he wanted to earlier, but maybe not this summer. They need improvement, they need to play better as a team defensively.

“It’s not only about the two or three defenders, it’s about the whole team.”

Pogba wants move

Paul Pogba wants to join Barcelona or Real Madrid.

That’s according to the Mirror, who say he would jump at the chance to move to Spain.

Jose Mourinho has grown fed up of the Manchester United star.

But whether he is granted his wish remains to be seen.

Virgil van Dijk was a £75m BARGAIN in the eyes of Roy Keane.

“Outstanding,” Keane said of the Liverpool defender.

“When they bought him you thought ‘that’s a lot of money’. Now it looks really cheap.

“The key to him, whatever he has done, he has made the players around him better.

“That’s what great players do. He’s made the other players around him better.”

Pogba deal

Manchester United want to sell Paul Pogba in January and are eyeing a swap deal with Juventus.

The Mirror report that United would like either Miralem Pjanic or Alex Sandro as part of a deal to flog Pogba back to his old club.

Pogba and Jose Mourinho's relationship has broken down and he appears destined to leave.

And they will now look to sell in January.

Arsenal are in talks with Barcelona over a deal for Denis Suarez.

Barcelona have offered the midfielder to a host of clubs, including Arsenal.
