Will Patrice Evra reveal Man United exit after Southampton game?

Evra

French defender is keeping his cards close to his chest for now, but has promised to reveal all after the final league game.

United mainstay Patrice Evra has been discussing the prospect of leaving the Reds, with his contract set to expire in just a few weeks.

The Frenchman, who is a target for Ligue 1 giants PSG and former club Monaco, as well as Nemanja Vidic's future outfit Inter Milan, has featured more than any other outfield player at Old Trafford this year, and may feel more accountable than most for the club's disappointing league position.

United have long been interested in adding another quality left back, with a drawn out courting of Leighton Baines last summer eventually coming to nothing. Whether the interest in the England man, as well as the equally unsuccessful pursuit of Fabio Coentrao and Alberto Moreno, moves that would have surely seen Evra displaced in the side, played a part in the United man's dip in form may be something that Evra is keeping in mind.

It is clear the decision is not one he is taking lightly, and Evra was quick to point out that whatever decision he makes, he will always hold the club close to his heart.

"I will decide in two weeks about what I am going to do," Evra is reported as saying in the Mail.

"There have been a lot of rumours, but I have not decided anything yet. My agent will have a meeting with Manchester and we will see."

"Everyone knows how much I love this club," the former Nice man said.

"It’s difficult... The reason is an important reason. And you will see. I will tell if I am staying or leaving this club at the end of the season."
