Patrice Evra: No intention of leaving Manchester United

Reports from the continent had suggested that big-spending PSG were ready to turn their attention to the 31-year-old left-back.

But France international Evra, who has been with United for over six years following his move from Monaco, insists he has no intentions of leaving before his contract has expired in 2014.

Talking to CanalPlus he said: "You are not serious to ask me such a question? I have one year remaining on my contract, I am playing at Manchester United and I am captain.

"You would need to kill [Sir Alex] Ferguson before anyone made me go to Paris! There is nothing in it and I am happy at Manchester."

However, the Senegal-born Evra admitted he was flattered to be linked with a move to Paris, where he was raised.

"It's always a pleasure to be wanted by a club such as Paris St Germain, especially as I am Parisian. I have never hidden my love of Paris, even though Monaco is still 'my' team," he said.

"It has always pained me to see the club not win the title or qualify for the Champions League."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
