Patrice Evra will accept pay cut to join Juventus

Published Add your comment

Patrice Evra is happy to accept a pay cut on his £90,000-a-week wage in order to seal a move away from Manchester United, reports Goal.

The France international has an option to extend his Manchester United contract by one-year, as do the club, but neither party has shown any indication that it will be activated.

With Manchester United seemingly set on signing Southampton teenager Luke Shaw, it looks as though Evra will bring a successful career at Old Trafford to an end this summer.

Evra, 33, has already held talks with Italian club Juventus over a two-year contract and both the club and the player's representatives were encouraged by the progression made in the meetings.

In order to make sure he seals a move away from Old Trafford in the near future, Evra is willing to take a pay cut on his current £90,000-a-week wage.

Juventus are keen to seal the signature of a new left-back and have also been linked with Manchester City star Aleksandar Kolarov.

Evra, however, remains the number one target and Juventus are keen to tie up a deal in the near future, knowing Serie A rivals Inter Milan could swoop in.

Inter have already signed Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic and are keen to add another Red Devil to their ranks.

Evra joined Manchester United in 2006 and has claimed five Premier League titles and a Champions League winner's medal.
