Juventus reportedly missed out on the chance to sign Patrice Evra, apparently due to a couple of reasons.
The French full-back ended the season amid increasing reports that he would walk away from Manchester United.
With his contract due to expire at the end of June, both Inter and Juventus were linked with interest in the 33-year-old, until the weekend saw him commit to a new one-year extension at Old Trafford.
Sky Sport Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio has explained that Juventus did miss out on signing the international, for two reasons.
Specifically, early uncertainty this month over Antonio Conte’s future at the club was seen as having caused Evra to hesitate, whilst the Old Lady is seen as having failed to demonstrate to the player that they were interested enough in securing his services.
It was a duel situation that was apparently enough for Evra to stick with United and exercise a one-year renewal clause in his existing contract.
