Report: Man Utd let Evra leave

Tuttosport claim Manchester United have given Patrice Evra the all-clear to join Juventus.

The defender reportedly put in an unofficial transfer request this week and it seems United’s final attempts to change his mind have failed.

According to Tuttosport, Evra will arrive over the next few days to complete a medical and sign a two-year contract worth €3.5m per season.

The left-back has been at Old Trafford for eight years, but wants the switch for personal reasons.

It will be a return to Italy for Evra, as the Frenchman started his career at Marsala in 1998-99 and Monza in 1999-00.

Juventus are also said to be on the verge of securing striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid for €18m plus add-ons.
