Whilst insisting that there are no plans for Evra to move on just yet, Pastorelo suggests that the player could potentially leave this summer.
“No, there is nothing really to report on Patrice,” said Pastorelo. “There has been interest, and I have read about Real Madrid but really the only official interest was from Inter Milan last summer. We had a long chat with Sir Alex Ferguson and it was decided he would stay in Manchester. His contract runs out in the summer of 2012 and there he is concentrating and focused on this season. We will sit down in the summer with Manchester United and decide whether he will extend his contract or move on. But for the moment there is nothing special to say on the situation.”
