Evra could be on his way back to his former club.
Big spending Ligue 1 side AS Monaco have pinpointed Manchester United’s Patrice Evra as their next transfer, with the Principality club willing to pay £10m for their former defender, reports the Mirror.
Evra spent four years at Monaco, which included reaching the Champions League final in 2004, before signing for United in 2006 for £7m.
Despite the Frenchman being 32-years-old and in the twilight stages of his career, Les Rouges et Blanc are still willing to pay £3m more for the left-back than they sold him for seven years ago.
Evra has just two years left on his current deal at Old Trafford and with newly appointed manager David Moyes keen to bring old Everton player Leighton Baines with him to the Red Devils, it could be the perfect move for the club.
Monaco have already spent £114m on new players this season with the arrival of FC Porto duo Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez, Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao and also Ricardo Carvalho from Real Madrid on a free transfer.
The club have made no secrets about how much money they are prepared to spend this summer with the seemingly endless funds of Russian billionaire owner Dymitry Rybolovlev.
Therefore a big money move for Evra wouldn’t be so far-fetched and could also help the Red Devils shake up their aging back four with some younger faces.
The France international played 42 matches for United in 2012/13 in all competitions, scoring four goals and setting up a further six and since joining the club has won five Premier League titles and a Champions League winners medal.
