Patrice Evra: Returns to homeland with Marseille

Patrice Evra is a notable absentee from Juventus’ squad to face Bologna, fuelling more speculation that he is to return to the Premier League this January.

Manchester United and West Ham have both been strongly linked with the Frenchman, and there were reports in Saturday’s tabloids that the Red Devils were keen to offer their former defender a coaching role as part of Jose Mourinho’s backroom staff.

Evra is firmly behind Alex Sandro in the pecking order at the Serie A champions, but with the Brazil international out injured and still no sign of the Frenchman does strongly suggest an exit is on the cards.

La Liga strugglers Valencia are also said to be interested in the veteran left-back.
