United star eyeing move to Madrid

Published Add your comment

Reports today suggest that the 29-year-old defender is contemplating a move to European rivals Real Madrid, with a club source claiming: "Like any player, he wants what is best for himself and his family and sees Real Madrid as the perfect move."

The French international joined Manchester United in 2006 and is currently contracted with the Old Trafford club until the Summer of 2012.

The left-back was vocal throughout the Wayne Rooney saga, displaying anger towards the players and club's handling of the situation.

A source close to the star declared Evra is currently keen to move on, sighting the same reason for discontent as used by Rooney, that he is concerned over United's investment into the squad.

Real Madrid are believed to have been monitoring the French defender and it is thought that Jose Mourinho would welcome Evra to his squad, finally ending his search for a world-class left-back.

A United Source spoke to about Evra leaving, and explained: "Patrice originally wanted to leave in January but now he is happy to sign a new contract and leave at the end of the season."

"He is concerned about where the club are heading and is attracted by the possibility of playing for Real, a club he really admires."

This view of Evra contradicts his outburst over the Wayne Rooney saga, when he claimed "if one player doesn't trust the others he should not play in the team."
