Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed Patrice Evra was left out of the squad as he is weighing up a move away from Italy.
Manchester United, West Ham and Valencia are all leading the chase for the veteran left-back, who was notable omission for the Serie A champions when their squad for the game against Bologna was announced over the weekend.
Now Marotta has confirmed that there is firm interest in the 35-year-old and he could well be set to leave the Juventus Stadium this month.
“Evra was not called up to the squad because he’s thinking about his future,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “If he leaves, we will not sign a replacement.
“It’s only right he’s taking a moment to reflect, as his contract will expire in June, he is 35 years old going towards 36. We’ll see next week.
“I don’t think we need to find a replacement, as we have internal options like Kwadwo Asamoah and Federico Mattiello.”
