New arrival Patrice Evra’s contract signed with Juventus will reportedly see him paid €3.5m per season.
With Juve confirming an instalments totalling at least €1.2m will be paid to the Old Trafford outfit for the player, speculation is now on how much Evra will take in.
Tuttosport believe that the 33-year-old’s two-year contract agreed is at a salary rate of €3.5m per season.
If accurate, that figure places Evra as just below the Old Lady’s current top earners.
Meanwhile, So Foot have run quotes today from the player, on various moments on his career, including four years ago when he was apparently on the verge of leaving for Inter or Real Madrid.
“In the summer of 2010 I had decided to leave Manchester. I was tired of the climate and the fog, and I wanted a change of scenery for family reasons.
“I was looking for a milder climate. There were teams interested in me such as Inter and Real Madrid, but [Sir Alex] Ferguson showed up at my house in Manchester to convince me to stay at the club.
“I know that my heart really took the right decision. When Sir Alex speaks, it is always good to listen.”
