Evra Won’t Sign a New United Contract for “Personal Reasons”.

Manchester United defender Patrice Evra looks set to quit the Premier League champions at the end of the season after suggesting he will not sign a new contract because of “personal reasons”.

Evra was asked whether he was concerned about his contract situation on French football programme, Telefoot, and he replied: “No, not at all (concerned). It is a personal thing.”

“It is not that Manchester United do not want me to sign a new contract. This whole thing is personal.”

“Manchester United would like me to finish my career there, but this is something personal.”

With the 32-year-old poised to end his nine-season journey with the Old Trafford outfit, David Moyes might have to rekindle his interest in Everton left-back Leighton Baines, who he failed to sign last summer.

The Frenchman was not willing to disclose details; nevertheless, he has enjoyed the brighter days of his career in Manchester, winning five league titles and the Champions League.

He has also been summoned to a hearing with the French Football Federation for labeling ex-France international Bixente Lizarazu, who now works as a football pundit, and Luis Fernandez as “tramps” following criticism of his recent performances.

The former Monaco player could be forced to issue a public apology or face disciplinary action ahead of Les Bleus World Cup play-off against Ukraine in November.
