Manchester United are ready to make a shock bid to bring Jonny Evans back to Old Trafford.

Manager Jose Mourinho believes that it was a huge mistake by predecessor Louis van Gaal to sell the central defender to West Brom for just £6million two and a half years ago.

Now he wants him back – but Mourinho knows he will have to fight off neighbours Manchester City and Arsenal who are both preparing bids for the 29-year-old Baggies star who faces United at the Hawthorns on Sunday.
