When asked about what kind of players Man United need to sign in the summer, Patrice Evra told Sky Sports: “The current players have been here for so many years, the fans are on [top of] them so it brings a lot of negativity around the club.
“So we need fresh blood. New players? What kind of players? Will these players come for the badge? Or will they come for the money or the fame?
“I’m more looking for players with character and [want to know] what their reason is for coming to United. Of course [we need an overhaul]. It’s about time, we need a change. It will be like a dramatic change.
“I’m not saying 10 players leave and 10 players come in and this will be the solution. But it would be a good solution.
“When talking to the fans, it’s almost like a déjà vu. It’s the same players they’re questioning [as to] why they’re playing and why they’re here.
“I think even those players don’t want to be at United anymore because I can see those players are even feeling sad when you should be feeling blessed and grateful wearing that jersey.
“So there’s something wrong. I hope those players that don’t want to stay just leave the club and the new players come in and fight for the badge.”
Erik ten Hag is planning for a major squad overhaul this summer and wants to make a number of signings to improve things at Old Trafford next season.
With a minimum of 5 players leaving United in the summer, the Red Devils are bound to have a busy transfer window that will decide how they perform in their debut campaign under Ten Hag.
