In a weird series of events, Patrice Evra could be off to Turin to play his football next season – despite signing a contract extension with Manchester United this summer. The French fullback did agree to stay on for another year, but it looks like Manchester United will lose the influential 33-year old.
Hopefully it’ll be part of a deal bringing Atruro Vidal to Old Trafford, but according to the Daily Mail, Juventus will be paying around £2million for the Frenchman. Evra, who has won it all at Manchester United, is set to be paid around £55,000-a-week after tax.
Luke Shaw’s arrival has made it tricky for Evra, and he’s at that stage in his career where he needs to be playing regularly. Although it’d be great for him to mentor the young Shaw, a move is probably the best for all parties involved. We would have to sign another left-back though in case Shaw picks up an injury.
