Juve to seal Evra today?

Juventus are speculated as pushing to reach an agreement with Manchester United today for Patrice Evra.

Despite the 33-year-old signing a one-year contract extension at Old Trafford at the end of last season, United’s decision to bring in Luke Shaw has re-opened the doors for Evra.

It is understood that recent weeks have seen Juventus come back into the picture and even reach agreement with the France international on an initial two-year contract worth in the region of €3.5m per season.

A deal is yet to be struck between the Bianconeri and Red Devils and this is where both the Gazzetta dello Sport and Tuttosport focus today’s reports.

The pink paper indicate that Juve are pushing to seek resolution on the possible deal today, but are unwilling to pay any more than €1.5m.

Meanwhile, the Turin daily believe that today will see the player’s entourage due in London and possibly in line for imminent talks with United.

It is understood that Evra has instructed his agent to accept Juventus’ offer out of the desire to maintain first-team football, including at Champions League level.
