After a spell of ups and downs with Juventus in the Serie A, Patrice Evra is on the move again, with Olympique Marseille his next destination if reports from Fabrizio Romano of Sky Sports are true.

The former Manchester United left back is set to sign for the French club with a reported 18 month contract on the table, according to reports in Italy.

Evra is all prepared to undergo the medical procedures in France tomorrow, as his move to the Ligue 1 nears completion.


Patrice has lost a bit of reputation among the French fans after previous World Cup campaigns and his performances during them, and a move back to the country might help him get his countrymen back on his side.

The 35-year-old has been under scrutiny off late for his social media obsession and a run of poor performances.

Despite being linked with a return to his beloved Manchester United and other English clubs like Crystal Palace and West Ham, it seems as though the defender has made his decision, and is ready to go back home, or back to his country, to say the least.

With age against him and pace a little off as compared to before, Evra still carries bags of title winning experiences from Italy and England, and certainly contains a recipe for success within his bag of footballing knowledge and abilities.

His glory days might be behind him, but he can help a club like Marseille get them soon and reach the top, with PSG currently slipping away from the #1 spot.
