With Leyton Baines linked with a January move to Manchester United, it is rumored that Patrice Evra’s time at Old Trafford is coming to an end. In a recent interview to Telefoot (in France), the French left back hinted that he is getting ready to leave the Red Devils when his contract expires at end of this season.
But now, contradicting his earlier statement, Evra claimed that the French interview was a big misunderstanding.
He told MUTV,
“The problem with me is I don’t read the papers so I don’t know what people are saying about me,” he stressed. “I had a French interview and I said: ‘It’s personal’ meaning ‘I don’t want to talk about it’.
“Maybe some people [outside] want me to leave the club but that’s not the case. I will answer if somebody wants to talk about my contract because I think it ends after this year but then they have to talk with Manchester United and my agent. Me? I love this club so much.”
“The only thing I can say is it [the French interview] was a big misunderstanding.”
Evra will hope that he can replicate the form he showed last season under the new manager – David Moyes. Yesterday, he provided the winning assist against Stoke City .
