Patrice Evra has held talks with Manchester United over a potential January move


Juventus left-back Patrice Evra is looking to leaving the Italian giants this month.

The French defender has just six months left on his current deal and is no longer a starter for the Italian champions. Alex Sandro has replaced Evra as the first choice full back and therefore the 35-year-old is looking for a move in order to play some first team football.

According to Calciomercato, Evra has already held talks with his former club Manchester United. The report adds that Evra has also spoken to West Ham, but the Red Devils have an advantage. Apparently, Juventus are interested in Matteo Darmian and therefore something can be worked out between the two clubs.

Earlier this week, The Times reported that Evra wants to join Manchester United and has already informed his friends that he will leave Juventus if United come calling.

Evra spent nine seasons at Manchester United before joining Juventus in 2014. The French left-back has won the Premier League five times with the Red Devils. He also won the Champions League with them.

Manchester United are lacking depth in the left back position and Luke Shaw has been in and out of the squad due to lack of fitness and form. Signing Evra could be ideal for Mourinho right now.

The Juventus defender could be a stopgap option for Manchester United until they can sign someone better at the end of this season. Furthermore, Evra could be the ideal mentor for young defenders like Borthwick-Jackson (set to return from his loan) and Shaw.
