The 33-year-old has been at Old Trafford since January 2006, when he was signed from Monaco for £5million.

Despite growing speculation about his future throughout last season, Evra signed a one-year contract with United in May.

The Senegalise-born defender has won the Premier League five times with United, and was part of the team that won the Champions League in 2008.

Evra played in four of France’s five matches at the World Cup, as the team reached the last eight of the competition before losing 1-0 to finalists Germany.

@jimbobbarker: Italian Football is better that English any day of the week. @deepster: I actually thought Evra was one of the few players not to let us down last season

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA.
