Evra flattered by PSG interest but remains content
Patrice Evra has said he is happy with life at Manchester United, after reports suggested he would leave Old Trafford for Paris St Germain.
Carlo Ancelotti’s Qatari-backed side have long been linked with a move for the French full-back who grew up in Paris after moving from Senegal.
But the United captain insists a move away from Manchester is unlikely in the near future.
Evra, 31, told The Sun, “You would have to kill Alex Ferguson before bringing me to Paris.
“For now, there is nothing to do. I have a year left on my contract and I am at Manchester United. I am captain and I am happy.”
Nevertheless the Frenchman’s contract at Old Trafford expires in 2014 and he will be aware of the Red Devils’ recent policy of offering only one-year extensions to players over the age of 30.
With the prospect of earning a higher salary and greater job security at PSG, Evra could yet be tempted into a deal with France’s capital club.
“It’s always a pleasure to be wanted by a club such as Paris St Germain, especially as I am Parisian”, said the former PSG youth-team player.
“I have never hidden my love of Paris, even though Monaco is still ’my’ team.
“It has always pained me to see the club not win the title or qualify for the Champions League.”
Evra joined United in January 2006 from Monaco and has since been a regular fixture in Ferguson’s side, even assuming the captaincy after Nemanja Vidic was ruled out by injury for much of last year.
