Man Utd in Evra contract talks this week

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is set for contract talks with Patrice Evra.

Ferguson and chief executive David Gill will concentrate their efforts on persuading Evra to sign a new contract when they meet the French defender's representatives tomorrow, says the Daily Mail.

Evra has so far been unimpressed by the £50,000-a-week deal offered him by United and remains adamant he will allow the last year of his contract to run down rather than compromise significantly.

With Italian clubs AC Milan and Juventus both interested in signing the left-back, United know they face a struggle to hold on to him if they cannot reach some kind of agreement this week.
