Manchester United have confirmed that Patrice Evra has extended his contract for another year, after his current deal expired today.
Some newspapers reported last week that Evra had been spotted in Turin ahead of a medical at Juventus, but this story was denied by the player’s agent, Claudia Pastorello,
“The guy hasn’t been to Turin,” he revealed. “That he’s a player who Antonio Conte likes is true but I think he will stay at Manchester United. A transfer to Juventus is very difficult.”
The club have released the names of players who will not be playing for United next season, which is Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Jack Barmby and Federico Macheda.
