Old Trafford boss keen to offload squad players to finance further transfer moves this summer.
Manchester United defender Wes Brown is mulling over a possible move to Everton.
David Moyes is keen to land Brown, 31, in a £4m deal in the hope his vast experience will bolster the Toffees’ defence.
Meanwhile according to Tribalfootball Sunderland face competition for Manchester United defender John O’Shea.
O’Shea has accepted terms from Sunderland, but is delaying a final decision as he considers his options. The versatile defender is also a target of Celtic boss Neil Lennon.
As well as these reported moves above there is growing speculation that off form defender Jonny Evans may be on his way to Wolves with Mick McCarthy taking an interest in the Northern Ireland centre back who will see his first team chances greatly limited next season. The 23 year old made just 11 Premier League starts last term and as well as having regular first team pairing of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand ahead of him in the pecking order the likes of Chris Smalling and new signing Phil Jones will also be head in the queue.
Darron Gibson, like John O’Shea, is said to be a player Steve Bruce wants to bring to Sunderland to give his Stadium of Light more quality as he looks to push on from last season’s top ten finish. Sir Alex Ferguson has already brought in Jones, Aston Villa winger Ashley Young and is set to complete the signing of keeper David de Gea and is therefore looking to trim his squad ahead of further additions.
Wes Brown’s move to Everton would be a wise one for all concerned after the veteran Man United man reportedly fell out with Ferguson last season and the former England international may find a new lease of life, and perhaps more importantly, regular first team football at Goodison Park.
A move to Celtic may tempt John O’Shea although the chance to remain in the Premier League could be too tempting to turn down. Neil Lennon would also need to find the funds to finance a move for the adaptable defender who would reportedly cost around £6m to secure.
Having spent close to £50m on Jones, Young and de Gea, Ferguson will know that he will have to cut some deadwood from the Old Trafford squad to help balance the books and there appear to be no shortage of interest parties in the hunt for this solid quartet who have amassed over 900 appearances for the Premier League champions.
