Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson spoke with Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra over their futures at the club, according to the Daily Mail.
It's been suggested that the duo - who played a key role under Ferguson at Old Trafford - asked the club's ambassador for advice last season.
Leaving Old Trafford
Ferdinand and Evra both departed the Theatre of Dreams at the end of last season after a disastrous campaign under David Moyes. But Ferguson has insisted that players didn't see him to complain about the Moyes regime last term.
In his updated Autobiography, the ex-Unites boss said: "Did players come to see me to complain? Did they hell. Utter nonsense."
It's not surprising, though, that the duo left the club behind, with Ferdinand completing a move to Premier League new-boys QPR, whilst Evra joined Serie A giants Juventus. Ferdinand has endured a tricky opening period at Loftus Road, and was even dropped for the club in this past weekend's clash against Liverpool.
Evra, meanwhile, is seemingly enjoying himself at Juventus, with the club currently sitting at the top of Italy's elite division.
United issues at the back
Manchester United, on the other hand, have struggled without the experienced duo throughout this campaign so far. With Dutchman Louis van Gaal now at the helm at Old Trafford, the Red Devils have struggled at the back and have only kept two clean sheets from their opening eight league fixtures.
It's up to the likes of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans and Co. to step up now, whilst new signings Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo will be hoping to play a key role for the club throughout the season.
United certainly won't have it easy in their next fixture, however, as they play host to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side at Old Trafford. The Red Devils will be desperate to secure all three points on Sunday, with the club already 10 points behind the table-topping Blues.
