Meanwhile in The Sun, Jonny Evans is tipping fellow countryman Steven Davis to cause the Reds problems ahead of Tuesday’s battle of Britain clash with Rangers in the Champions League. The United defender, 22, said. “Steve is technically and physically one of the best midfielders I have seen coming out of Northern Ireland.”
The Daily Mail also reports that United face stiff competition from Barcelona in the race to sign Panathinaikos playmaker Sotiris Ninis. The Reds have long tracked Ninis, with a future £8million move mooted for the player who can operate on either wing or behind a striker. Ninis is said to have his heart set on a move to Old Trafford, but Spanish sources are convinced that Barca can change his mind.
