Manchester United defender completes exit for Italian Job

France defender Patrice Evra has completed his move to Juventus, reports Sky Sports.

The 33-year-old will depart Manchester United for an undisclosed fee, however it is expected to be around £1.5million. He won 5 Premier League titles, 3 League cups, the Champions League and World Club Championship during his time at Old Trafford, since joining in the January transfer window in 2006.

Evra had signed a 1-year contract extension with the club in May, however he was given permission to join the Serie A outfit after the Red Devils completed the signing of Luke Shaw from Southampton.

The Frenchman was not on board United’s plane that set off to the U.S. last week as part of Louis van Gaal’s preseason tour. The Dutchman’s side will play against LA Galaxy, Roma, Inter Milan and Real Madrid whilst over in the United States.

New signings Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera were on the plane that departed from Manchester Airport, as well as Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Wayne Rooney, who join the squad after their disappointing World Cup campaign. Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez, Adnan Januzaj and Marouane Fellaini are still on holiday after reaching the knockout stages of the tournament. 

Evra was in the Premier League team of the Year 3 times in a United shirt, as well as earning a place in the UEFA Team of the Year and FIFPro World XI in 2009.
