Patrice Evra has not decided whether he will leave Manchester United this summer, according to the full back's agent.
The 32-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and although there have been talks between the player and the club over an extension, there has been little indication of a new agreement being made.
United skipper Nemanja Vidic has already agreed to join Inter Milan when his contract at Old Trafford expires in July and Evra has been linked with joining him at the San Siro.
France captain Evra had spells at Italian minnows Marsala and Monza in the early stages of his career before he began to carve a reputation in Ligue 1 and could be tempted by a return to Italy, although he will not make any decision regarding his future until the end of the season.
"Patrive has to decide what to do with his future," Evra's agent Federico Pastorello told Tele Radio Stereo, Sky Sports report.
"He is very close to United, but things have changed a little. Could he come back to Italy? Patrice has always highly regarded Serie A and so, if were to leave England, it could be a possibility. But at the moment it is still too early to talk about next season."
In a response to a dismal season that sees them sat 31 points behind runaway Serie A leaders Juventus, Inter are to embark upon a major recruitment drive this summer. But while Evra has been intensely linked with joining Vidic in Milan, Inter president Erick Thohir recently revealed that there had been no contact with the Frenchman over a proposed move to Milan.
Evra has been integral to United's first team since displacing Gabriel Heinze at the start of the 2006/07 campaign and a lack of a direct replacement for him is likely to see United in the market for a left back this summer.
