The France international’s deal was set to expire on July 1st, but after making 45 appearances across all competitions last season, the club decided to offer him an extension as he was one of the more consistent performers in what was a disappointing season under David Moyes.

However, Evra’s decision to remain at Old Trafford will apparently have no impact on their attempts to sign Southampton’s teenage left-back Luke Shaw.

United have already lost three senior players in former captain Nemanja Vidic, who is to join Inter Milan, midfielder Ryan Giggs, who has retired, and defender Rio Ferdinand, who announced he will leave the club, and Evra’s decision to stay means that the club will be able to call upon at least one senior member of the playing staff next term.

Evra has previously served as club captain, though he is not expected to take the role on a full time basis next term, as Wayne Rooney is being tipped as the most likely to take the honour.
