Manchester United fans HEARTBROKEN as fan-favourite closes in on transfer to major rivals

Manchester United appeared to have had their dreams of securing a return to Old Trafford for former star Jonny Evans dashed, after reports emerged stating that the player is closing in on a move to rivals Arsenal.

This is according to the Sun, who state that the Gunners are close to agreeing a deal of around £25m for the Norther Ireland international.

This is news that will be a blow to United, who were reportedly targeting the former Red Devils ace according to the Sun, as boss Jose Mourinho is looking to fill the void left by Eric Bailly, who has ongoing injury problems.
