Patrice Evra is on the verge of putting pen to a new Manchester United contract according to reports.

The 29-year old French left-back is set to sign a fresh three-and-a-half-year deal with United which will see him earn about £90,000 a week.

Evra has been attracting plenty of interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid but this news will do plenty to put United fans at ease.

He has been a key contributor to the club's success since joining from Monaco in 2005 and is now likely to remain at Old Trafford until at least 2014.
