Good Evans! Jonny shock 12m target for Barca after United block Vidic bid
Barcelona are planning an audacious move for Manchester United defender Jonny Evans. The La Liga club sounded out a move for Nemanja Vidic earlier this summer but were given short shrift by Sir Alex Ferguson. Now Barcelona are set to turn their attentions to Northern Ireland centre-back Evans, who enjoyed a prolonged spell in the United first team last season. Evans, 21, proved a capable deputy when Rio Ferdinand and Vidic were injured. Now Catalan giants Barcelona are plotting a £12million raid for the United star. Gerard Pique left United in 2008 to move to the Nou Camp and he has thrived in Spain since - winning the Champions League final against United last season. But they face a fight to lure Evans away from Old Trafford - his contract expires in 2011. Ferguson has told the youngster he can expect more first team action if he stays with the club.
