Patrice Evra to extend his contract at Manchester United [Di Marzio]

At least two key Manchester United defenders will be leaving this summer, after a long period of defensive stability.

Centre backs Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand will definitely be leaving Old Trafford this summer, with Vidic on his way to Inter Milan.

A question mark still stands next to Patrice Evra’s name, with the 33 year old’s contract running out this summer.

The left back has been linked with a move back to France, but according to respected Italian site Gianluca Di Marzio, Evra will likely sign a new deal at Manchester United.

Evra could be seen as an ideal tutor for possible summer signing Luke Shaw, who has been subject of a £30m bid.
