Patrice Evra: Almost returned to United

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed the club are still waiting for Patrice Evra to decide whether he wants to move this month.

The veteran left-back has been strongly linked with a return to Manchester United, while West Ham and Valencia are the other possible destinations.

Allegri was asked to give an update on the Frenchman, but he revealed that there has been no progress since the weekend when he was left out of the squad to face Bologna.

“Evra is in the same situation as he was two days ago,” Allegri told a news conference. “We don’t know what will happen.

“He was clear and we were with him. He has taken some time to decide whether to stay or not.”

Allegri also echoed the thoughts of director Giuseppe Marotta, who stated last week that Juve would not sign a replacement if Evra decides to leave.

“I don’t expect anything from the market,” he added. “It’s pointless buying just to make up the numbers.”
