Manchester United defender Patrice Evra is being linked with a January move to Juventus.

Italian publication Tuttosport claims the Serie 'A' giants, who are known to be interested in winger Luis Nani, also want to bring the French international full-back to Turin.

And, the report goes on to claim that negotiations between the two clubs have taken place, and involved the 32-year-old.

Evra joined Manchester United back in 2006, with Sir Alex Ferguson bringing the defender to England after four seasons with AS Monaco.

He's since gone on to feature on a regular basis for the Red Devils, captaining the side on countless occasions and lifting five Premier League trophies, as well as one Champions League.

However, the veteran has not signed a new contract following the arrival of manager David Moyes, and his Manchester United future is now in huge doubt with his current deal set to expire in June.

That would suggest that Juventus are in a decent position to negotiate, although Alex Buttner is the only ready-made replacement currently on the first team books for the champions.

Others have been linked, and it remains to be seen if Moyes does try and shuffle his pack in the position over the next fortnight.
