Patrice Evra has urged Cristiano Ronaldo to snub a return to Manchester United and instead move to Juventus this summer.

Ronaldo’s future has been a big source of speculation this summer and it appears that the 33-year-old is set to leave Real Madrid after nine years in the Spanish capital.

Manchester United have long been linked with a move to re-sign Ronaldo after he left Old Trafford to sign for the Spanish side in the summer of 2009.

However, Juventus are believed to be the front-runners to secure his signature this summer as they look to bolster their squad ahead of next season.

Evra played for both clubs, and the former France international clearly thinks that a move to Juventus would be the best option for him at this stage in his career.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Evra said: “Pat, what do you think?

“I haven’t spoken to Cristiano about this, but my advice is, if he wants to play to 2050, he has to go to Juve. There is no other team he must join. It’s simple.

“I thank Juve, because if after Manchester I continued to win and to run, it was thanks to Juve. You should never spit on the plate that fed you, so Juve will always be in my heart.”

Meanwhile, Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to assemble a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.

The Red Devils have so far tied up deals for Diogo Dalot, Fred and Lee Grant as Jose Mourinho prepares for his third season in charge at the club.
