Evra sweating on Man Utd contract talks

Patrice Evra has been left sweating over new contract talks with Manchester United.

The French left-back, 27 tomorrow, has only one year left on his current deal and no new offer has been made while the Red Devils have tied up long-term contracts with Rio Ferdinand, Wes Brown and Michael Carrick.

Evra said: "My agent is speaking to the club. There has been one meeting and nothing since.

"I have one year left. The ball is in United's court."

Evra admits he has had to block out doubts about his future to focus on playing.

He said: "My job was to concentrate on winning the title and I have done it.

"Now my job is to concentrate on winning the Champions League. Let's see what happens after that.

"It was very important for me to win the league, not because of my new contract but to prove that last season was not an accident."
