Real Madrid are preparing to launch another summer raid on Manchester United – this time to land left-back Patrice Evra – on the advice of last summer’s big mover Cristiano Ronaldo.

The French international is the club’s top target after being recommended by Ronaldo, who left Old Trafford for the Santiago Bernabeu in a world record £80 million deal last summer.

Valdano has a number of other candidates on his wishlist — including Arsenal’s Gael Clichy, Chelsea’s Ashley Cole and Fiorentina’s Juan Manuel Vargas — but Evra is his top target as Ronaldo insists he is the man for the job. As a result, a bid in the region of £20m is being prepared.

Reports from France suggest Evra might be open to the move, considering he has already won every trophy available to him in English football since joining United from Monaco in January 2006.
