Report: Another Man United man offered to Juventus


As Juventus continue to chase Manchester United's Nani, there are reports that Nani's agent has offered them Patrice Evra as well.

Juventus have made no secret of their desire to bring Portuguese international Nani to Turin, but Tuttosport believes they have been offered the chance to sign Patrice Evra as well.

The Bianconeri are aiming to reinforce their squad for the second half of the campaign as they try and close out the Scudetto with an eight-point lead over Roma.

The Old Lady and Manchester United are apparently in wide-ranging transfer talks regarding several players on each side and Nani has been a target for several weeks.

But Tuttosport states that Nani's change of agent from Jorge Mendes to Federico Pastorello could open the door to another of Pastorello's clients Evra.

The 32-year-old's contract expires at the end of the current campaign and is unlikely to be renewed, leaving him to find a new club.

Evra has played in Italy before, wearing the shirt of minnows Monza for the 1999-2000 campaign before heading for French side Nice, then Monaco and finally arriving at Old Trafford in 2006.

The French international has played over 250 games for Manchester United and has won the Premier League five times. Unlike Nani, he is still very much part of David Moyes' first team plans.

Tuttosport reports that Juventus have asked for time to consider Evra but are still pushing full steam ahead to try and lure Nani.

In order to sign Nani, the Bianconeri may have to sell at least one of their out-of-favour strikers with Fabio Quagliarella close to signing for Lazio and Mirko Vucinic being offered to Arsenal.
