The 33-year-old left-back moved from Manchester United to the Bianconeri on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £1.5millon.

He is looking forward to the challenge ahead as Juve try to win the Serie A title for a fourth successive year.

Evra, who will be officially unveiled as new Juventus player on Thursday, told the club's official tv channel: "The sensation here at Juve is incredible.

"I start a new adventure. I come from a club like Manchester, where I won everything and now I'm here with the Bianconeri where I have done nothing yet.

"I am someone who likes to win, I chose a team like Juve to win and I will do my best to give all that I can for the club, for the fans, for the coach and for my team-mates."

France international Evra was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United in 2006 and went on to enjoy an illustrious eight-year career at Old Trafford, winning the Champions League in 2008, five Premier League titles, three League Cups and a Club World Cup.

He made a total of 379 appearances for United, scoring 10 goals, but was given permission to leave following the signing of England international Luke Shaw from Southampton.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
