Manchester City Targeting Shock Move For Ex-United Player

Manchester City Targeting Shock Move For Ex-United Player”

Guardiola's opening gambit of £18m plus add-ons was turned down and the message from the Hawthorns is very clear: Evans is not for sale.

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has admitted that he was surprised when the club sold Jonny Evans to West Bromwich Albion.

Pep Guardiola has been in the market for an experienced, strong defender all summer, but has seen attempts to sign Virgil van Dijk and Leonardo Bonucci hit the buffers.

Before the fight was even officially announced, Mayweather was a -2250 favorite while McGregor was at +950, CBS Sports noted. I've never seen anybody who believes in himself more than this guy does.

While some are shocked by the possibility of Evans moving to the Etihad, the former Manchester United centre back could be a welcome addition to the team. "He went in to see the doctor at the training ground and came to the ground and told me on Saturday it was sore".

City were often caught short in that area last season, with just three senior centre halves in Nicolas Otamendi, John Stones and Vincent Kompany.

Evans won three Premier League titles at City's crosstown rivals United, having been a youth player there before finally leaving for West Brom in 2015.

Maria Sharapova handed wildcard for US Open
The USTA announced on Tuesday that Sharapova would get a wild card into the US Open , which begins in two weeks. After winning her opening match at Bank of the West Classic , Sharapova had to pull out the plug.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the Baggies will "only consider letting Evans leave if Tony Pulis manages to sign a replacement first", and even then the paper predicts that City will need to up their offer to around £30m.

Evans, still nursing a hamstring injury suffered during pre-season, did not feature for West Brom last weekend as Pulis' side began the 2017-18 Premier League season on home soil.

Elaquim Mangala has returned after his loan spell but is unlikely to stay a City player for long while Guardiola is set to use the services of Jason Denayer and Tosin Adarabioyo sparingly.

Guardiola promises more to come from Man City
