Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has clarified reports that he plans to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season.

The France international suggested that he would not be renewing his contract, which expires next summer, in a recent interview with Telefoot.

However, the 32-year-old has now made it clear that he loves the club and hopes to stay beyond this season.

"The problem with me is I don't read the papers so I don't know what people are saying about me," he told MUTV. "I had a French interview and I said: 'It's personal' meaning 'I don't want to talk about it'.

"Maybe some people [outside] want me to leave the club but that's not the case. I will answer if somebody wants to talk about my contract because I think it ends after this year but then they have to talk with Manchester United and my agent.

"Me? I love this club so much."

Evra is United's first-choice left-back - although manager David Moyes, who succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer, attempted to sign another full-back at the end of the transfer window to provide the Frenchman with some additional competition.

Moyes failed in a bid to sign his former player Leighton Baines, who stayed at Everton, while the Scot was also unsuccessful in his attempts to land Real Madrid's Fabio Coentrao on a season-long loan deal.

However, Evra has featured for the Red Devils regularly this term, and captained the team during Wednesday night's Champions League win over Real Sociedad.
