Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has offered Red Devils chiefs fresh incentive to tie him down to a new deal by insisting that his love for the club will never change, while also telling RMC that manager David Moyes has his full support during a difficult transitional period.

Evra is out of contract at the end of the season at Old Trafford, with his long-term future far from uncertain as Inter Milan continue to be linked with landing the French international on a free transfer this summer.

The 32-year-old has grown accustomed to success with United, lifting five Premier League titles, but has been forced to cope with a very different kind of campaign under Moyes this term.

Despite United's struggles in all competitions Evra is adamant that he remains fully focused on fighting for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification, while also conceding that the transition from Sir Alex Ferguson to Moyes has been difficult but an unavoidable necessity.

Evra told RMC:  "There was a big change, it had to be digested. Nobody likes change. The team played under Alex Ferguson for more than eight years," he said.

"We're behind the new manager, we're going to do all we can to qualify for the next Champions League. Whether I win trophies or we're bottom of the table, my love for the club will not change."

United have so far declined the opportunity to end speculation over the defender's future by offering the left-back a new contract, which means the Red Devils could still lose one half of their back four if Evra follows Nemanja Vidic to the San Siro this summer.
