Manchester United star Patrice Evra has finalised a deal to join Nemanja Vidic at Inter Milan, reports the Daily Telegraph.
The future of Evra has been high on the agenda at Manchester United ever since Vidic confirmed his exit from the club. Like Vidic, Evra's contract expires at the end of the season but it is only now that the Frenchman has decided to leave Old Trafford.
The 32-year-old has reportedly agreed a deal with the Serie A outfit and will move to Italy along with Manchester United's captain at the end of the season.
Evra did have to option to extend his contract at Old Trafford after meeting to required amount of appearances this season. Manchester United, too, had to option to re-sign Evra but it is believed both parties agreed an amicable parting of ways was best.
Manchester United are looking to usher in a new era after the disastrous reign of David Moyes came to an abrupt end last month and fresh blood is required to do that.
It is expected that Manchester United officials will launch a £27m bid for 18-year-old Southampton star Luke Shaw. United travel to St Mary's later today and are confident of wrapping up a deal in the early days of the summer transfer window.
Chelsea, who were also interested in Shaw, are reportedly now chasing other left-backs after conceding to Manchester United. Shaw could be the first of a number of arrivals at Old Trafford this summer and the first of Louis van Gaal's reign.
Evra has made over 300 appearances for Manchester United since joining from Monaco eight years ago. He will leave Old Trafford with a number of medals in his cabinet. Five Premier League medals, three League Cups and one Champions League caps what has been a successful partnership between Evra and Manchester Untied.
