Patrice Evra is easily one of the best left backs in the premier league. But, aged 32, the Frenchman is not getting younger by day. With his contract at Old Trafford coming to end soon, this season may well be his last one at Old Trafford.
Now let’s see 3 Left Backs who can replace Patrice Evra permanently for the Red Devils without degrading the squad’s quality.
3. Luke Shaw
One of the key figures in the new rejuvenated Southampton side, who are performing above expectations this season. Luke Shaw is just 18 year old but he already established himself well in the Saints’ starting lineup.
Even though Shaw had signed a five-year deal recently, which enables him to stay with the south coast club until June 2018, a move to a bigger club like Manchester United may tempt him away from the Saints.
Shaw is quick and has good ball control and dribbling skills to beat players at will when going forward. Despite being very young, he has the maturity to know when to go forward and when to stay back and help the defense.
