United defender eyes up Italian job

Manchester United defender Patrice Evra is considering a return to Serie A, reports the Mirror.

The Frenchman is out of contract in the summer, and could leave the Premier League after more than 8 years at Old Trafford. Evra joined United from Monaco in 2006 for under £6million, but played for Marsala and Monza in the lower Italian leagues before then.

But now the vice-captain looks set to end his stay at United, with the club not extending his contract past this season. Evra will join captain Nemanja Vidic out of the club on a free transfer, and could even follow the Serbian to Serie A. Federico Pastorello, Evra’s agent, claimed it’s a possibility: “Even though he turns 33 in May, he still has another three to four seasons at the highest level in his legs.

“Inter and Roma? Speaking with him, I have understood that technically Serie A is a possibility. He is very attached to Manchester United even if recently things have changed a bit. But Evra still has not taken a final decision.”

Evra has rarely been rivalled for his position at left-back during his time at United. But with suggestions that the Red Devils will bid for Southampton defender Luke Shaw this summer, the Frenchman could find himself on the Old Trafford bench next season if he was offered a new deal.
