Evra’s move to Juventus now hangs in the balance – report

by Sam Peoples

It appears the transfer of Manchester United defender Patrice Evra to Italian champions Juventus could now be off according to reports coming from Italy.

Last week, Gianluca Di Marzio said Evra, who had been a long term target of Juventus outfit, had agreed and signed a contract to join them on a two-year deal.

However, since the recent departure of former manager Antonio Conte and appointment of Massimiliano Allegri, Italian newspaper La Repubblica suggests Evra might have had a change of heart due to the managerial merry-go-round.

Taken from a press conference with Allegri, La Repubblica claims Evra has requested assurances he would not be left sitting on the bench for new club Juventus as, if that was the case, he would prefer to stay at Old Trafford.

It is believed that Evra, 33, who only signed a one year contract extension with Manchester United in June, is mainly looking to leave England due to family demands.

Interest in the defender has also been shown from Inter Milan who recently signed Nemanja Vidic on a free transfer from United as well as French sides Monaco and PSG.

With the shock departure of title winning manager Conte, departures and arrivals could be put on hold until Allegri has spent time with his new squad, something which could pose further problems for United who are in pursuit of Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal.
