Patrice Evra wants a new two-year deal if he is to remain at Manchester United beyond the summer claims a report in Italy.
The French left-back’s current deal expires next month, and despite United having the option of a one-year extension, reports at the weekend claimed he could be on his way to Juventus after allegedly undergoing a medical and holding talks in Turin.
The ongoing stories linking Southampton’s Luke Shaw with an Old Trafford switch have done nothing to lessen the Evra rumours, and it seems unlikely the latter would remain at the club if the talented teenager swooped in and took his place.
However, the latest story from Italian website Tuttosport claims Evra would be happy to remain at United, with a big “if” attached.
The report claims Juventus have offered the 33-year-old a two-year deal but adds that Evra is “willing to at United only in the case of a two-year extension”.
With Louis van Gaal now officially named as the new United boss, it will be up to him to decide if Evra warrants a new deal.
But if Shaw does arrive, it seems highly unlikely that the Dutchman will feel he needs Evra to stay – especially with no European football next season and with Alexander Buttner also currently on the books.
