Evra: Ribery can replace Ronaldo

Next Story

Patrice Evra has been advising France team-mate Franck Ribery to join him at Manchester United.

Responding to the continued speculation linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a move away from Old Trafford, full-back Evra admitted he did not know whether the Portuguese winger would stay or go but did highlight a ready-made replacement.

Ribery has been in scintillating form for a struggling Bayern Munich side this year and Evra told The Sun: "Many say Cristiano will leave but only he knows the answer. It's clear a guy like Franck would be the ideal solution for United if Cristiano left. Of course I talk to Franck about it, I tell him 'you had better come here'."
