Patrice Evra has denied rumours that he wants to leave Manchester United at the end of this Premier league season after reports had suggested that the 32-year-old did not want to sign on to a new deal at the club.
Evra's current contract expires next summer, prompting interest from clubs of his home country including Paris Saint Germain and AS Monaco - and when questioned on a possible move and his contract on MUTV, he stated: "I did an interview in France and I said it was personal."
He has made it clear that the only reason he would leave would be personal reasons as he is now in the twilight years of his career at 32 and may be looking to return home and relax in an environment where he feels perfectly comfortable.
Many have also suggested that the deep interest David Moyes expressed in Leighton Baines, who David Moyes attempted to sign twice this summer, unsettled the United man.
While Moyes' unsuccessful attempts to sign Real Madrid's Fabio Coentrao may have also been a contributing factor.
However, the United man feels the opposite - and in the interview with MUTV, he added: "I love this club so much," which is an obvious indication that he is going nowhere.
It is clear that Evra does not want to leave at this current moment in time but the longer he does not sign a deal with the Premier League champions, the longer speculation about his future with the club will loom.
