Glad he didn't go to La Liga cos he'll start making up silly accusations again against a certain Barca player.

Liverpool, Barca and Juve in the same Champions League group anyone? Or are Barca and Juve both in pot 1?

sorry to see him go, but glad we signed he and repaid us many times over with some great perfrmances and fantastic goals. We need more like him if we are going to get back on top.Good Luck Patrice.

@altamont, he's a 33 year old fullback with a year left on his contract, it was never going to be a big fee. Besides, the club probably agreed to a slightly lower fee out of respect to his years of service to help the move go through, plus they get a senior player who wasn't likely to play much off the wage bill. @jimmyjazz, Evra was looking past his best last season, so I overall think the time is right. I'd have preferred him to stay another season to take the pressure of Shaw of being pretty much our only option at left back. However, I can understand why, at 33, Evra would rather go elsewhere to get more first team football. No one wants to go from vice-captain to bench warmer overnight. I imagine he's had a chat with Van Gaal and decided the role offered wasn't for him.

Great servant down the years, shame to see him go in many ways. I hope he has every success in Italy.

The fee is not 'undisclosed', it's in Juve's press release: £1.2mln (£600k now, £600k next year) with a further £300k if Juve qualify for Champion's league next season

Just 1.5 ? A free transfer sounds more respectable

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
