It is widely reported in English media that Juventus have made an official approach to Manchester United for Patrice Evra.
It has been said in recent days that the French international defender has already agreed personal terms with the Old Lady, despite having only recently signed a one-year contract extension at Old Trafford.
All that seems to remain before a deal can be completed is for the two clubs to agree on a fee for the 33-year-old.
According to reports this afternoon, this has moved a step closer to becoming a reality after Juve officials made contact with their Red Devils counterparts. A formal bid is said to be forthcoming.
