Patrice Evra Launches Brutal Rant On Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez

Patrice Evra didn't hold back when giving his honest assessment on Alexis Sanchez.

The ex-Manchester United captain sat down with his former teammate Gary Neville and they spoke about several topics including Sanchez as well as Paul Pogba, who continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

Evra believes Pogba will leave in the summer and he reckons some players have only come to United for the money.

"I don't want to blame all the players because I think that some players are here [at United] and they themselves don't even know why they are here," he told Sky Sports.

"I think [Pogba] will leave, because you need to feel the love when you play somewhere, you need to be committed.

"If Paul decides to stay another year and then leave, or stay another few years, maybe the fans will love him because he is committed.

"It's not like I am protecting Paul but when there are incidents like yesterday with the fan, they are killing Paul."

Evra's referencing Pogba's heated exchange with a United fan following his side's devastating two-nil loss to Cardiff City on the final day of the Premier League season.

He was subject to abuse from a supporter in the Stretford End despite the midfielder finishing the season as the club's top goal scorer.

Evra then turned his attention to Sanchez. He lambasted the Chilean in a brutal rant.

"Some players only come for the money, I am not afraid to say that. I have nothing against him, but Sanchez, when I saw the deal, that's when I thought the Manchester United history just went down.

"He had Manchester City, they were offering less money but he was going to play better football than United - I'm sorry about that, but City play better football and Guardiola will improve him.

"So I want to know what is the real reason for choosing United? Don't tell me he loved Manchester United when he was a kid. It's either the money or he wanted to be the number one, take the No 7 shirt and be the star."

Just like Pogba, Sanchez is also attracting interest with the likes of Juventus and Inter Milan reportedly weighing up an offer for him.

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is plotting a major squad overhaul following a miserable campaign.

Will Sanchez and Pogba still be at United next season? Let us know what you think.
