Juventus have officially confirmed the signing of French international Patrice Evra from Manchester United.

The 33-year-old put pen to paper on a new one-year contact at Old Trafford in May, but he was displaced as United’s first choice left-back following the arrival of England star Luke Shaw from Southampton last month.

Evra has signed a two-year deal with Juve, who have been champions of Italy’s Serie A for the past three seasons.

Unlike United, Juve will compete in the Champions League next term – a competition that Evra won with the Red Devils in 2008.

In total, Evra played 337 first-team games for United, whom he joined from AS Monaco in a £5.5m switch in January 2006.

As well as lifting the Champions League, Evra helped United win five Premier League titles, three League Cups, five Community Shields and one FIFA Club World Cup.

He has been capped 61 times by France at senior international level.

Evra will link up with France teammate and former United midfielder Paul Pogba in Turin.

Pogba, 21, was on United’s books for just under three years, making seven substitute appearances, before leaving to join Juve in July 2012.
