Patrice Evra set for Manchester United exit?

Published Add your comment

Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra has suggested that he will not renew his contract when it expires at the end of this season.

The 32-year-old, who has been at Old Trafford since 2005, hinted that he will leave the Red Devils due to personal reasons.

When asked whether he was concerned about his contract expiring, Evra replied in an interview with Telefoot: "No, not at all. It's personal. It's not Manchester (United) that don't want me to sign a new contract. This whole thing is personal.

"Manchester United's dream is that I finish my career there, but this is something personal."

Evra could reveal no further details, but it looks increasingly likely that the France international will move on at the end of the season.

United boss David Moyes was keen to bring in another left-back to provide Evra with competition during the summer transfer window.

As well as making a couple of bids for Everton's Leighton Baines, which were both rejected by the Toffees, Moyes also attempting to sign Real Madrid's Fabio Coentrao on a season-long loan deal.
