Manchester United & French international left-back Patrice Evra is a prime summer transfer target for Italian giants Juventus according to reports in the News of the World.

The Red Devils have been making the news off the field this week after they confirmed they have agreed new long terms deals with Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick and Wes Brown. However, it appears that talks with Evra, whose contract expires at the end of next season, haven't been quite as constructive.
Representatives from the Italian club were reportedly at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome to watch Evra in the first leg of United's Champions League quarter-final first leg which they won 1-0.

Evra, a French international, has been a consistent part of the United first team since signing for the Red Devils in 2006 from Monaco. Indeed his performances at left back where he is almost as effective going forwards as defensively have ensured he has become a key part of the United side who would be reluctant to let him leave.

However, it is thought that Evra's wage demands may be behind the defender's decision not to sign a new contract already. Evra is likely to be well aware of the new deals his colleagues have signed this week and as such is unlikely to back down in his demands, and it is thought that this could lead to Juventus enticing him away from Old Trafford if they can find an agreeable financial package.

Meanwhile, United have reportedly slapped a price tag of £10 million on Evra in the hope of warding off any potential suitors.

Ahhh RD4L you beat me to it! I saw this on Goal.com too and thought I'd make a thread. I don't believe it though. If Evra wants to make more money I don't particularly have a problem with putting him on a higher salary. He's worth it.

evra is not going to leave. he is the next in line to sign a contract after brown, ferdinand and carrick have signed.
evra will become the best fullback if he improves his crossing, and grow 2 inches higher.....the latter unlikely...
