Two Reasons Why Manchester United Should Not Splash Cash On This Evra Replacement

Patrice Evra’s time at Manchester United might be heading to an end, as the French has a contract which runs out of date this summer. Evra has been an inseperable part of the Red Devils‘ team since 2006 and now when the 32-year-old is set not to extend his stay at Old Trafford, the club must come up with a worthy successor for the left-back.  Another footballer who might be making his way to the English giants is Real Madrid’s Fabio Coentrao. Reports claim the Portuguese would cost the Red Devils about £20 million, but still the question is if Coentrao is worth that price tag? or Should Moyes keep Evra instead ?

1. Inconsistent

Coentrao has never played for a Premier League team before, in consequence could mess up Manchester United ahead of getting accustomed with the play style. Unlike Evra, Coentrao is rather inconsistent and might not be capable to step into the Frenchman’s big shoes, as he had appeared in only four La Liga matches this season. He is struggling hard to compete with Marcelo at Madrid. Coentrao is a pacey player who enjoys moving forward on the left wing, however he has been known to get caught out of position and he is error prone in defense. With United defense already leaking goals for fun this season, this is not the right time to buy the Portuguese left-back.
