The experienced France international spent four highly successful years in the South of France between 2002 and 2006, during which time Evra made it all the way to the 2004 Uefa Champions League final, only for Monaco to lose to FC Porto.

And the attacking full back then left the French outfit in January 2006 to join Premier League giants United on a three-and-a-half-year deal for a fee of just £5.5 million, with Evra having since gone on to establish himself as being one of the most consistent and impressive left backs on the Continent.

In total, Evra has appeared in 348 matches in all competitions for the Red Devils, scoring eight goals in the process, but with the 32-year-old’s contract now set to run out on June 30 2014, and the player himself having recently hinted that he may quit Old Trafford at the end of this season, Monaco are hoping to be able to persuade their former defender to re-join them next summer on what would be a highly lucrative free contract.
