Man United won’t sign Juventus defender in January, claims Insider
Manchester United won't be signing Juventus defender Patrice Evra in January, according to reports
Manchester United won’t re-sign Patrice Evra in the January transfer window, according to reports on social media.
Sky Sports News HQ reporter Kaveh Solhekol has taken to Twitter to claim that Evra won’t be securing an emotional return to Old Trafford.
Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand fanned speculation surrounding Evra last week after the retired England defender asked his former team-mate whether a return to the Red Devils was on the cards.
While Solhekol revealed that Manchester United had the chance to bring back Evra in the 2016 January transfer window, the Sky Sports News HQ reporter poured cold water on talk of the left-back returning to Old Trafford.

Evra scored 10 goals in 379 appearances in all competitions during an eight-year career at Old Trafford.
The 35-year-old won five Premier League titles, the Champions League and three League Cups during a decorated career at the 20-time English champions.
Manchester United are in sixth place in the Premier League table.
