Patrice Evra completes Marseille move

Patrice Evra's time in Italy looks to be over after the Juventus man agreed a deal to return to France with Marseille.

January 25, 2017 The Premier League side, however, failed to reach an agreement with the former Manchester United star who has eventually chose to return to his home country where he will play for Marseille for the next 18 months.

Despite the 36-year-old's considerable salary requirements, the club did not hesitate to sign him from Juventus, where he had plied his trade for a successful two-and-a-half seasons after his long and memorable spell with Manchester United in the EPL, which began when he left Monaco in 2006.

Evra, who began his career with Paris Saint-Germain, and also had spells with Monza and Nice, had joined Juve in July 2014 after making 379 appearances in eight years with the Red Devils.

Lyon did not enter the race to sign Patrice Evra from Juventus because he would have "unbalanced" their squad, coach Bruno Genesio has said.
