I wonder if LVG plans on playing Patrice further up the field in front of Shaw.

He does like to reposition players


I doubt it he might look to use a wing back system to help with the workload but I personally don't think 3-5-2 works well in England because most teams play with wide midfielders so your full back is constantly being out numbered 2 vs 1. I think both Rafael & Valencia on the right side and Shaw & Evra could play this role though if he wanted to set them up that way but I don't think he'll use it very often. I can't see a system where they both play unless he uses Evra as a CB in a 3 with Shaw as the wing back.

I think Evra is here for 1 more season to help with the transition and also retain the "winning mentality" in the dressing room a lot of vocal leaders have left this summer and I think Evra is a key part to retaining the right sort of attitude in the dressing room. I think he might be made club captain for this season as it helps avoid the Rooney vs RVP debate and I think Evra is the sort of strong character that LVG will like

Manchester United are prepared to sell Patrice Evra to Juventus this summer.

Tuttosport says talks between the clubs have intensified this week, with United prepared to sell the Frenchman for €4 million.

United boss Louis van Gaal would prefer to keep Evra, who penned a new one-year deal before the World Cup, but will agree to the sale if Juve meet their asking price.

The Serie A champs, however, refused to go higher than €3 million for the 32 year-old.

Juve have also tabled a two-year contract to Evra's representatives worth €7 million.

Or give us Vidal or Pogba, up to you

For 3m euro why would we sell him?

Literally what is the point? We'd need to buy another LB as we can't go into the season with 1 guy who can play LB in Shaw.

If we got a silly offer of say 10m euro then the balancing of the books stuff does come into play but for 3m euro we might as well keep him and let him go for nothing next year.

Depends if he is going to go 3 at the back I suppose.

I don't think we should sell Paddy anyway. He's a red!

Even then Paddy could play on the left side of the 3 and we'd still need to but left sided wing back as none of our wingers are left footed the only other natural left footers in the squad are Mata & RVP and good luck getting them to play as a wing back :lol:

Just seems like a very odd story that when you break it down makes no sense for United unless we were offered a stupid price for him.

Spot on he gets what playing for Utd is about and I think he'll be the one stressing the high standards required to be a Utd player to the new players and personally I'd make him the club captain next season even if he isn't playing every game I think he's the vocal leader in that dressing room now that Rio/Vidic have gone. Also, helps to avoid the Rooney vs RVP thing!

Quote:
Juventus have approached Manchester United over the availability of defender Patrice Evra.

The Italian club contacted Old Trafford officials - although no formal bid for the 33-year-old has yet been made.

United recently triggered a clause in the France international's contract that saw him sign a one-year deal.

Evra made 45 appearances for United in all competitions last season as they finished seventh in the league after a disappointing season under David Moyes.

He was part of the France World Cup squad, playing in four out of their five games, including the quarter-final defeat by Germany.

Evra joined United for £5.5m from Monaco in January 2006.

He has made 379 appearances for the club, winning five Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008. It was anticipated he would replace Nemanja Vidic as club captain following the Serbian's summer exit for Inter Milan.

Manager Louis van Gaal does have a ready-made replacement for Evra in new signing Luke Shaw should a deal with Juventus eventually be concluded, although with Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs no longer available, it would mean a significant loss of experience.

Makes you wonder why Juve didn't sign Cole on a free if they wanted a LB?

That leaves a huge void in the dressing room imo he has been on the decline for years as age caught up to him but he provided the highlgiht of last season where for about 20 seconds we were knocking Munich out of the CL.

"After a great deal of thought I have decided the time is right for me to leave Manchester United. It is the biggest decision of my career as this club is, and will always remain, in my heart.

"Joining and playing for Manchester United has been a privilege, a dream come true and my time here has been so memorable. Through the good times and the bad times we have all stuck together and remained loyal. I have always said you don’t just join Manchester United, you join the family and long may that tradition continue.

"This club is steeped in history and I feel privileged to have become a part of that. Over the past nine years I have met and worked with some incredible people, many of whom will remain friends for life. I would like to thank everyone at the club - teammates, coaches and in particular all the staff who made every single day in Carrington or at Old Trafford a special day.

"An immense thank you to Sir Alex Ferguson for making it all possible, for giving me the privilege to be a captain, to be inspired by the legend of Manchester United and to understand that nobody is bigger than the club.

"My biggest thanks go to the fans. We have had some fantastic times together, we lifted all of those trophies together and that night in Moscow will live with us all forever. Every single time I stepped out in that shirt I knew I was playing for the badge and for a very special club.

"My passion for this club will live on and I know you guys will go on to enjoy more success in the coming seasons."

:bow: :bow: :bow:

Farewell Patrice thank you for providing the best 10 seconds of last season with that absolute "thunderb*stard" against Munich

Here was a player who came in and got what it means to the fans to play for Utd and is arguably the best LB of the Fergie years he's certainly in the conversation with Irwin as Evra was often left to basically be the left side on his own with very little protection in front of him.

It's a shame like the other defenders who've left this summer that he didn't go out as a champion but it maybe is time for him to move on and have a new experience over in Italy.

A man who'll always be welcomed back at Old Trafford hopefully we'll see him in the CL in 2015/16 :wink:

Thanks for the memories Paddy! It was becoming increasingly obvious he wasn't as good on field as he was up to 3 years ago, but his enthusiasm, heart and outright banter were still world class.

Good luck in Turin. He'll be a Utd legend I can tell my kids about :thumbup:

Was an amazing player for the club and found himself as a fan favourtie. Best of luck. He'll get a reception as good as Ronaldo if he ever returns with Juve.

My favourite LB after Denis Irwin. You will be missed Patrice.

Gutted :(

We've lost over 2k appearances for the club this summer in Giggs, Rio, Vidic and Pat.

Carrick is now the oldest player in the squad?
