Evra played in four of France's five matches during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil before the team lost to Germany in the quarterfinals. The left back has played for Manchester United since he arrived at Old Trafford from AS Monaco in 2006. 

Antonio Conte, who managed Juventus for the past three seasons, resigned on July 15. Less than a day later, the club named Massimiliano Allegri as its new manager.

United will also start next season with a new manager. After the club finished seventh in the Premier League last season, Louis van Gaal was hired to take over from David Moyes.
