Turkish giants Galatasaray have offered Patrice Evra refuge should he decide to move away from Old Trafford this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

With questions over his form and David Moyes' public attempts to sign Leighton Baines, the 32-year-old may find himself out of favour very quickly at Old Trafford.

Galatasaray have made sure that they'll be at the front of the queue should he decide to seek a new challenge.

Manchester United manage Moyes is actively seeking a left-back in this summer's transfer window and has recently had a bid rejected by Everton for Baines.

If Baines does join the club, he is likely to be the first choice ahead of French international Evra.

However, with the World Cup just around the corner, Evra is not prepared to risk losing his place in the international set-up by sitting on the United bench.

His former club Monaco are also thought to be interested in bringing Evra back to the south but Galatasaray are confident of convincing him to go east with Champions League football on offer.

Evra has not told Moyes he wishes to leave but will keep a close eye on his transfer activity over the next two weeks.

Manchester United bid £28m for both Baines and Fellaini on Monday morning but Everton have rejected the offer calling it "derisory and insulting."

The Premier League champions are yet to indicate whether they will return with an improved offer.
