Evra puts pen to paper on new United contract
Machester United left-back Patrice Evra has signed a contract extension with the Premier League leaders, keeping him at the club until at least 2014.
The deal ends on-going speculation that Evra, 29, would leave Old Trafford, with Real Madrid apparently a fan of the Frenchman.
Evra signed for United for £5m in January 2006, from French side Monaco. Since then, he has developed into what Sir Alex Ferguson has recently described as "Unquestionably one of the World's best left-back".
Sir Alex will be delighted at securing the ongoing services of Evra, after Ryan Giggs also signed a one-year contract extension with the club last week.
