Evra hints he wants United stay.Reuters

Patrice Evra has given a strong indication that he is looking to renew his stay with Manchester United after echoing his love for the city.

The France international's future at Old Trafford is uncertain as he approaches the end of his contract and could leave the club as part of a significant overhaul in the summer.

Nemanja Vidic has already announced his intention to leave at the end of his contract with a move to Inter close to being completed while there is little sign of Rio Ferdinand being offered a new deal.

While Evra is also in the final months of his current deal, recent reports have suggested the 32-year-old has activated a clause in his contract that gives him the option of a year's extension having played a minimum number of games this season.

Although he is yet to announce his decision, fan favourite Evra appears keen to remain in the city he has lived in for the last eight years.

"I love Manchester," Evra told French radio station RMC, Inside Futbol report. "When my love for Manchester breaks, then I'll try other possibilities.

"At the moment I am thinking only of the present. In May I will be 33 years old. I want to have fun at the World Cup, enjoying every moment and give my best."

Evra has been linked with a return to his homeland as he approaches the end of his deal with United with former club Monaco interested in his services in addition to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain.

Regardless of whether Evra opts to stay at United, the club are expected to bring another left back to the club before the start of next season.

Bids for Everton's Leighton Baines and Real Madrid's Fabio Coentrao were turned away during the summer transfer window but United are likely to renew their interest in the Portuguese international, with Southampton starlet Luke Shaw another name linked with the club.
