Patrice Evra was a fan favourite at Manchester United and really seemed to love playing for the club. He signed a new contract at United in May 2014 but then was sold to Juventus two months later.

Evra hasn’t revealed the full details of what happens but hints that the club did something to force him away from Old Trafford.

It’s still hard to talk about my United exit, but one day – when my career’s over – I’ll be able to speak more openly about it. I came to Turin above all for my family, because at Manchester they had inserted a clause in our agreement which changed the situation considerably. It really annoyed me. But I don’t regret this move, which in the end has proven to be more than positive. I’m happy in Serie A, even if it was more a coincidence that I ended up in Turin than a choice. My aim is to keep on winning with Juventus and the national team, particularly since we’re the host nation [at Euro 2016].
