Patrice Evra is willing to reject the advacnes of Juventus and stay at Manchester United as long as he is offered a two-year deal, reports Italian newspaper Tuttosport.

The France international has now joined up with Les Bleus ahead of the World Cup but his future at club level remains in some doubt.

His contract at Old Trafford is up in the summer it has been widely expected for some time that he would head for a new club with Manchester United expected to sign Luke Shaw as his long-term replacement.

Evra, 33, has been in preliminary talks with Juventus with a deal looking more than likely in recent days. However, with the announcement that Louis van Gaal will take charge of the Red Devils next season, the possibility of Evra staying at Old Trafford now looks possible.

The left-back is willing to stay at Manchester United but has told the club he wants at least a two-year deal, which will take him to his 35th birthday. Evra has been a valuable asset for Manchester United since joining from Monaco in 2006, and he could prove an invaluable mentor for the incoming Shaw.

Under David Moyes, it looked certain Evra would leave, but Van Gaal now has to make his own decision on the player.

Juventus have offered Evra a contract, believed to be worth €2.5m after tax but Evra remains open to staying with his current club. Manchester United do have the option to extend Evra's contract by a further 12 months but Evra would prefer to leave for a two-year deal if it is not on offer at Old Trafford.
