Man Utd confident securing Evra to new contract

Manchester United are confident of securing Patrice Evra to a new contract.

The Times says Evra hinted yesterday that he could leave Old Trafford unless the club doubles his £35,000-a-week wages amid interest from AC Milan.

Evra is in a strong bargaining position as United would be loath to lose the player for nothing when his contract expires next summer, but with more talks due to be held with the Frenchman's representatives today, the English and European champions are confident that an agreement over a new deal will be reached.
