Paris St Germain are looking at the possibility of taking Manchester United left back Patrice Evra to the French capital in January, according to the Daily Mail.

PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti was thought to be chasing Chelsea wing back Ashely Cole, as the English defender’s contract comes to end in the summer, but instead he seems to be swaying towards a bid for Evra.

Mega rich PSG are expected to spend big once again in January as the sides performances in the French league have been sub-standard, but the Mail report the deal for Evra could be done for as little as £4.5million.

French newspaper Le Parisien broke the Evra story yesterday and claim that the 31-year-old would be a better fit to the side than Cole because of the language barrier.

Le Parisien also report that Evra and Ancelotti are close with the same agent and with current left back Maxwell’s performances underwhelming this season we may see the Premier League left back head to Paris in January.
