West Ham set to seal quality free transfer despite David Moyes’ bizarre row with the player at Manchester United

Posted by

West Ham are reportedly set to sign Manchester United legend Patrice Evra despite manager David Moyes falling out with the Frenchman during their time together at Old Trafford.

The 36-year-old was sacked by Marseille earlier this season after being found guilty of kicking one of the club’s fans before a Europa League game.

Evra, however, could make a fine addition to the Premier League once again after shining in English football for many of the peak years of his playing career.

Paul Joyce of the Times has tweeted that the deal is on, though this has not yet been confirmed anywhere else.

Having spent eight and a half seasons at United, Evra helped himself to five Premier League titles and the Champions League among other major honours.

The former Red Devil was for a long time one of the best full-backs in the world, and continued to shine in a brief stint at Juventus after leaving Manchester in 2014.

That came after an alleged incident between himself and Moyes, who is now in charge of the Hammers after replacing Slaven Bilic earlier this season.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Scottish tactician was fuming with the left-back after he picked up a bacon sandwich at an airport on their way to a game.

Evra didn’t seem to respond too well to the manager’s issue with his choice, though in fairness this was some time ago and the pair seem ready to work together again.
