Juventus defender Patrice Evra has been strongly linked with a move back to Manchester United. The 35-year-old spent eight years at Old Trafford from 2006-2014 and the Manchester Evening News claims that the Frenchman could be in line for a sensational return. Another former United player Rio Ferdinand has also added fuel to the fire by posting on Instagram “hearing through social media u coming home bro, talk to me”.
The defensive duo, who won countless trophies together at Old Trafford, are renowned for their antics on social media and Ferdinand dropped a massive hint that his ex-teammate could be heading ‘home’.
Evra has made 79 appearances for Juventus since leaving the Red Devils back in 2014 but the legendary full-back has struggled for game-time under Massimiliano Allegri this term.
One of the main stumbling blocks of a possible January move would be the fact that Juventus are in the last 16 of the Champions League and Evra has made it clear that he would love to win the competition with the Italian giants. But his lack of playing time in Massimo Allegri’s team and Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho’s admiration for the player, has made a return to Old Trafford an intriguing storyline in this transfer window.
