Patrice Evra says Sir Alex Ferguson would have to be ‘killed’ before he is allowed to leave Manchester United and head to Paris Saint-Germain.

The full-back has been linked with a move back to France in recent weeks, but says he is not interested in leaving Manchester United despite his current contract coming to an end soon.

"You are not serious to ask me such a question? I have one year remaining on my contract, I am playing at Manchester United and I am captain,” he told Canal +.

"You would need to kill [Sir Alex] Ferguson before anyone made me go to Paris! There is nothing in it and I am happy at Manchester."

Despite refuting the claims linking him with a move away from Old Trafford, Evra did admit that it was flattering that a club the size of PSG wanted to sign him.

"It's always a pleasure to be wanted by a club such as Paris St Germain, especially as I am Parisian. I have never hidden my love of Paris, even though Monaco is still 'my' team," he said.

"It has always pained me to see the club not win the title or qualify for the Champions League."

The 31-year-old joined Manchester United from Monaco six years ago, and is currently wearing the captain’s armband in the absence of Nemanja Vidic.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side extended their lead over rivals Manchester City at the top of table with a 3-2 win at the Etihad Stadium, although the game ended in controversy after defender Rio Ferdinand was hit in the face with a coin thrown from the crowd.

Police have confirmed today that 9 supporters in total have been hit with charges relating to yesterday’s game, including one for a racially aggravated public order offence.
