The Catalan giants have made no secret of their desire to bring Evans to the Nou Camp and would part with £12million to do it. However, Spanish football pundit Armstrong believes Evans has already proven his worth to United.
“Jonny is great on the ball and is so versatile — being able to play anywhere across the back four or even midfield.
“He would be a massive hit in Spain, just like Gerard Pique who went from United to Barca in similar circumstances last year.
“However, Sir Alex Ferguson has Jonny earmarked as Rio Ferdinand’s long-term replacement and is far too highly thought of to be sold. Jonny is also worth much more £12million now.”
