Manchester United are preparing to re-sign Jonny Evans in a shocking January move.
Jose Mourinho believes that his predecessor Louis van Gaal was wrong to sell the talented centre-back to West Bromwich Albion for just £6 million, two and a half years ago.

Furthermore, the gaffer hopes to have a real close monitoring session when his side squares off with the Baggies at the Hawthorns on Sunday, in which the former United man is presumed to feature.
In the previous transfer window, while the Gunners just managed to register interest, the Etihad outfit offered a £20 million deal for the Northern Ireland international, although it got shunned by West Brom rather quickly.
Regardless, according to Mirror, it is believed that West Brom won’t stand in Evans’ way if an adequate proposal of around £30 million is obtained the next month.
With Eric Bailly sidelined in view of the undergoing surgery, the Red Devils are looking for central defenders to preserve the rigidity of their defensive line in the hopes of closing their gap between the Citizens, if the Sky Blues end up dropping any points, that is.
Evans has become a hot target for English clubs on grounds of the development he has showcased since his departure from Old Trafford.
It would indubitably be one heck of a race for Mourinho to acquire his signature prior to any other club doing so.
Regardless, the Irishman’s current contract fastens him to the Hawthorns until June of 2019.
