Man United star refuses to rule out move away

Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra has refused to rule a move away from the club, claiming he is only focused on the present.

It has been widely reported that the Frenchman is part of a trio of United's defenders that are going to be parting from the club in the summer.

Nemanja Vidic has already confirmed that he is leaving the club, with Inter Milan being favourites to sign the captain, with Ligue 1 outfits Paris St Germain and AS Monaco also said to be monitoring the situation.

Rio Ferdinand is now 35 and his current contract runs out in June, so he too will be considering his future in the game, with some parts of the media claiming it is time for him to retire.

It would seem Evra is also at the same crossroads in his career with his contract also coming to an end in June, and Moyes' side has been linked with multiple left-backs in the two transfer windows that he has been in charge for. They have seen a bid for Leighton Baines rejected, and a loan move for Real Madrid's Fabio Coentrao also fall through.

Evra joined the club in 2006 in the January transfer window, and told RMC Sport: "My love will not change for the club.

"I love Manchester. When my love will be broken with Manchester, I will study the possibilities.

"I am only thinking about the present. In May I will be 33 years old. I really want to have fun at the next World Cup, enjoy every moment and give my all."

Evra also commented on the managerial change, admitting it was hard to accept when Sir Alex retired.

"There was a big change, it must be digested - nobody likes change," added Evra.

"It is behind the new manager, we will do everything to qualify for the next Champions League."

Manchester United are well of the pace in the Premier League, currently languishing in 6th place with leaders Chelsea 15 points ahead of the defending champions, and 11 points 4th placed Liverpool who occupy the last remaining Champions League qualifying spot.

The Red Devils are also facing the possibility of being knocked out of the Champions League after losing the first-leg of the last-16 match against Greek champions Olympiakos 2-0, they will look to overturn the deficit at Old Trafford on March 19th.
