Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra will make a final decision on his future this weekend.
The Daily Telegraph believe the 33-year-old is yet to decide whether to either depart Old Trafford or extend his contract for a further 12 months.
Manchester United want Evra to stay on for a further year in order to mentor a younger and less inexperienced left-back.
The club believe his stature and influence in the dressing-room can help Louis van Gaal in what is likely to be another season of transition.
Manchester United's desire to keep hold of Evra is likely to have intensified following the departures of his fellow defenders Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.
Evra, who joined Manchester United for just £5.5million back in 2006, is reportedly being chased by Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco.
The former Monaco defender will want to sort out his future before he joins up with the rest of France's World Cup squad.
