With a mooted move to Juventus seemingly in the offing, it’s being reported today that Patrice Evra has politely asked to leave Manchester United due to “family reasons”.

Juventus have expressed an interest in signing Evra and while no bid has been lodged or transfer request submitted, it is thought that the French left-back is keen to move on this summer – thus ending his illustrious eight-year stay at Old Trafford.

With Luke Shaw having already arrived from Southampton for silly money, it’s clear that inbound United manager Louis van Gaal has already found his replacement for Evra – who, at the age of 33, is definitely starting to show signs of general decay.

As for the aforementioned “family” issues, ESPN FC are reporting that Evra is keen to move at the behest of his wife (ah, that old chesnut!) who is thoroughly sick of living in the north-west of England after nearly a decade in Manchester and obviously fancies a move to Turin.

Yep, that makes perfect sense to us.

    Ah, bitchy WAGs…

    “We have to live in this truly shitty place and my husband only makes millions of fucking dollars a year to play futbol. My life is so horrible…”

    Fuggin’ WAGs, life is so hard, being married to a millionaire.

  3. Jarren says:

    He’s off because his wife told him she wanted to move country, or he secretly wanted to do it himself but was too pussy to admit it?

    Pretty lame, either way.

    But we don’t know, maybe there was a really genuine reason.

    Court’s out on this one, and I for one wish him all the best.

    The Italian game will suit him at this stage in his career, and maybe if he fancies some nice Montreal sunshine in a few years he can come & play for the Impact… ;)

    He’s a dick. If he hands in a transfer request he loses his loyalty payments. By just saying he’s keen to move, Juve can make a bid MU can accept and he gets his dosh.

    Don’t be so hard on his wife, it would take a *lot* of money to make me stay in Manchester where it rains nine months of the year.
