PICTURE: Carlos Tevez welcomes Manchester United's Evra to Juventus

Departed Manchester United star finds a familiar face at Juventus.

Popular Manchester United star Patrice Evra called time on his career at the club this week, joining Juventus in a £1.2 million deal.

The switch to the Serie A champions is not entirely a leap into the unknown for the French international, for he will link up with a familar face.

Evra was welcomed by none other than Carlos Tevez, who posted the above message on his Twitter page, writing, 'welcome brother'.

The two players were part of United's Champions League winning side in 2008, both starting the final against Chelsea in Moscow.

Evra's place in United's recent history as a popular star is assured, but Tevez will forever remain a divisive figure.

He left the club in 2009 to sign for bitter rivals Manchester City, sparking the infamous 'welcome to Manchester' banners emblazoned in blue, and became a constant thorn in Sir Alex Ferguson's side while there.

City eventually sold him to Juventus last summer, where he scored 19 goals and provided eight assists in his debut season in Serie A.
