Manchester United star to leave this summer

Published Add your comment

Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra is set to leave Old Trafford when his contract expires in the summer, according to the Guardian.

The France international, who turns 33 in May, has yet to receive a contract extension offer from the Red Devils – and is subsequently expected to leave the club at the end of the season.

Evra could return to former club AS Monaco, who are currently fighting for the Ligue 1 title and should be competing in the Champions League next season.

The full-back played for the club between 2002 and 2006 before joining Premier League giants Manchester United for a reported £5.5m fee.

In his eight years at Old Trafford, Evra has won five Premier League titles and a European Cup.

He remains a hugely popular figure amongst his teammates and supporters, but United boss David Moyes is keen to recruit a long-term replacement, and could even sign Real Madrid full-back Fabio Coentrao this month.

The Portuguese defender is reportedly close to joining the Red Devils on an initial loan deal until the end of the current campaign.
