The Northern Ireland defender, aged 35, was formerly with Leicester City before his contract ended last season. His performance during training sessions caught the eye of coach Eric ten Hag, leading to his re-engagement.
The new contract facilitates Evans’ participation in friendly matches against Lyon and Wrexham.
Evans, who had previously played in 198 matches for the club until his departure in 2015, has had a glorious career with Manchester United, earning a Champions League title and three Premier League titles.
Manchester United have also agreed on a £47m deal for Inter’s goalkeeper Onana, and Rashford has signed a new long-term contract with the club.
The player, a product of the Manchester United academy, was initially training with the U21 team as he weighed his options post-Leicester City. He also participated in several first-team sessions, thereby impressing Ten Hag and his coaching crew.
Evans, a 102 times capped player for Northern Ireland, will journey to Edinburgh for Wednesday’s Murrayfield match against Lyon before facing off against Wrexham in San Diego the following week.
