Evra: I considered United exit

The France international has claimed the likes of Real Madrid and

Inter Milan were interested in his services. However, after holding

talks with Ferguson, Evra chose to remain at Old Trafford. Evra

said in the The Sun: “I had thought about leaving last summer for

family reasons but something changed my mind late on. “There were

clubs interested like Real Madrid and Inter Milan. “But the manager

visited me at my home to persuade me to stay. “I know my heart has

made the right decision. When Sir Alex talks, it’s a good idea to

listen!” Evra joined the Red Devils from Monaco in 2006 and has

since made 169 Premier League appearances for the club.
