Manchester United defender shuns PSG move

Manchester United left back, Patrice Evra, has dismissed reports linking him with a move to big spending Paris St. Germain.

Speculation from within France is that PSG are ready to turn their attention to the 31-year-old defender as they look to bolster their squad  with more world class talent after signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva in the summer.

But Evra, who has spent over six years at Manchester United, has no intention of leaving and was quoted by Sky Sports speaking to CanalPlus.


“You are not serious to ask me such a question? I have one year remaining on my contract, I am playing at Manchester United and I am captain.

“You would need to kill [Sir Alex] Ferguson before anyone made me go to Paris! There is nothing in it and I am happy at Manchester.”

Since arriving from Monaco for a fee of £5.5 million, the defender has gone on to make 221 appearances for the Red Devils.


However, a move to his native country could prove appealing for the player and he was flattered with the link.

“It’s always a pleasure to be wanted by a club such as Paris St. Germain, especially as I am Parisian. I have never hidden my love of Paris, even though Monaco is still ‘my’ team.

“It has always pained me to see the club not win the title or qualify for the Champions League.”
