Manchester United supporters will be more than pleased to hear that their French left-back Patrice Evra has decided to sign a one-year contract extension.
The 33-year old's future with the Old Trafford outfit has been under scrutiny throughout the entire season with the player refusing to decisively comment on his future at the club.
"There have been a lot of rumours, but I have not decided anything yet - My agent will have a meeting with Manchester and we will see" he was quoted saying by the Daily Mail just earlier this month.
Evra, who was bought from Monaco for £5.5million in January 2006, the same transfer window that saw the arrival of former United Captain Nemanja Vidic, is understood to be seen as a vital player by new manager Louis Van Gaal who will be hoping to line the 33-year-old alongside English youngster Luke Shaw next season.
Evra has made a total of 379 appearances for the Red Devils whilst racking up a total of 10 goals in the process.
The Frenchman's crucial performances over the years have led to the Red Devils being able to win five Premier League titles, three League Cups, the Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup during his time in the team
The 33-year-old will also be viewed as a candidate for the Red Devil's Captaincy having been United's Vice Captain over the past few seasons.
Evra will be hoping to put this past season behind him and focus on his international career with the club having their worst ever Premier League Campaign.
The 33-year-old was a crucial part of the Red Devils team that failed to win any piece of silverware and achieved an overall finish in 7th position, having played a total of 45 games for them.
