Manager Erik Ten Hag has given Evans a one year deal after a strong preseason at the club
Over the summer the Northern Ireland international has been training at United and he even featured in some preseason games.
Erik Ten Hag seems to have seen enough to offer the 35-year-old a one-year deal, in an efforgt to bolster his defence after Raphael Varane was ruled out for 'a few weeks' with another injury.
On joining his boyhood club again, Evans said: 'I am delighted to join Manchester United, a place which has always felt like home.
'This club and the fans have shaped me as a player and as a person since I was 15 years old, and I am delighted to be back where it all began as part of this talented squad.
'I've really enjoyed working under the manager and his coaching staff since the start of pre-season, and I'm looking forward to helping this group achieve success together at this fantastic football club.'
Evans arrival is yet another blow to Harry Maguire's career at Old Trafford as he faces stiffer competition to gain a spot in the centre of defence.
