Evra has revealed how Ferguson planned to re-sign Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, then playing for Tottenham, just weeks before news of his retirement emerged.
Speaking in the latest UTD Podcast episode, the Frenchman said: “You know, you talk about the hardest moments [in my United career], I would say maybe this (Fergie's retirement) is the one.
“Two weeks before that, I remember there was a lot of media saying Ferguson will maybe retire next year, and he said, 'Patrice, I will never retire. I will be here another 10 years'.
“And to be fair, when I speak with Cristiano, I ask him and he said yes to the boss, and was coming to join United. He told me this."
