Man Utd star reveals plans to depart in summer for “personal reasons”
Manchester United left-back and frequent captain Patrice Evra has revealed that he plans to leave Old Trafford this summer for “personal reasons.”
Evra was reportedly left unimpressed by Manchester United’s pursuit of potential replacements Leighton Baines and Fabio Coentrao.
The left-back was asked by Telefoot whether or not he was concerned with the impending expiration of his contract, and he response suggests that Evra appears ready to end his time at Manchester United.
“No, not at all,” he said. “It is a personal thing. it is not that Manchester United do not want me to sign a new contract. This whole thing is personal. Manchester United would like me to finish my career there, but this is something personal.”
Evra was reportedly upset at the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, and has been frequently frustrated by United’s attempts to sign other left-backs, with Leighton Baines in particular.
As such, Evra has been linked with a move to former side Monaco and French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
