According to the Daily Mail, Patrice Evra held talks with Juventus over the weekend with a view to a two-year contract.
The French left back was apparently spotted in Turin on Friday ahead of the move and looks set to undergo a medical and negotiations with the club.
Under Evra’s Manchester United deal he still has the option to sign a one-year contract extension at Old Trafford but he is yet to do so.
It’s understood that new boss Louis Van Gaal wanted Evra to do exactly that but it’s understood that the left back does not want to be a bit-part player at this stage of his career with Southampton left back Luke Shaw on the way in.
Manchester United are going to need to spend a lot of money this summer as they try to cover the wealth of experience leaving this summer.
Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic have already left the club and Ryan Giggs today revealed that he would be retiring as a player to take up a coaching role under the incoming van Gaal.
