Evra says Ferguson told him huge offers had been in place before he walked away from coaching in 2013, MySportDab reports.
Sir Alex Ferguson claimed to be “99 per cent sure” that Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale would join Manchester United.
Having previously backtracked on a choice to walk away from coaching, the legendary Scot rocked the sporting world when stepping down from an iconic post after 27 years.
Evra, who had been taken to Old Trafford by Ferguson was amongst those left greatly surprised when he walked away from Man United.
The Frenchman claims he had been told that no change in the dugout would be made.
Man United alternatively looking to put ambitious transfer agreements in place for two superstar forwards.
Ronaldo, though was to remain at Real Madrid with Bale linking up with him at Santiago Bernabeu.
Ferguson exceeded the managerial reins at United to David Moyes and a serious sense of what ought to have been set in for the Red Devils.
Which saw them hit a rut that they have only lately shown signs of escaping.
Evra informed the club’s official podcast of Ferguson’s departure and the plans that had been in the pipeline.
“You know, you talk about the hardest moments in my United career I would say possibly this is the one.
“Two weeks before that I remember there was a lot of media announcing Ferguson will possibly retire next year.
He said, ‘Patrice, I will never retire. I will be right here another 10 years’.
“He then said: ‘My goal is I’m ninety nine per cent certain we will have Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.
I just want these two players to win the Champions League again.
“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.
Evra added on Ferguson’s announcement that he would be leaving his post at Man United and after two weeks, we were in the dressing room waiting.
“When we arrived at Carrington, I see all those cameras and I was once like: ‘Wow, someone has done some thing wrong.
Maybe a player is the story again or someone has done some thing wrong and we are in trouble’.
“But we arrived and people said, ‘Guys, you have to stay in the dressing room because the boss wishes to have a chat’.
When the boss came into the dressing room to talk to everyone it was never good news.
“He came and he said ‘I’m absolutely sorry.
Some people have stated that I’m going to retire even before I say it myself.
That’s why you saw all those cameras but am retiring because my spouse needs me’.
“He apologised to Robin van Persie he apologised to Shinji Kagawa due to the fact he just brought them.
He apologised to them especially.”
