Manchester United star refuses to be drawn on Old Trafford future

Published Add your comment

Patrice Evra has put any talk of signing a contract extension at Manchester United to one side as he has revealed he is fully focused on helping his side progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The Frenchman, who has been at Old Trafford since he was signed by the Premier League champions for £5.5million in 2006, is currently contemplating a future away from Old Trafford.

Evra has been linked with a move to several European clubs ever since David Moyes succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson as manager of the north-west giants.

Moyes was keen on bringing Everton left-back Leighton Baines to the club, however the Scotsman failed in his pursuit of the England international.

Manchester United have also been keeping close tabs on Fabio Coentrao and Luke Shaw in hope that either of them can become the long-term replacement to Evra.

Moyes may look to keep Evra, who has been linked with moves to Inter Milan and Monaco in recent weeks, a new deal in order to keep some experiences in the dressing room.

However Evra refused to be drawn on talk of a new deal at Old Trafford ahead of his side’s crucial Champions League tie against Olympiakos.

“It is not a good day to talk about my future,” said Evra. “The future of Manchester United is more important.”

Evra is expected to start at left-back tomorrow in a game Moyes has to win in order to keep Manchester United fans on his side.
