Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him at Old Trafford until the end of the 2014-15 campaign.
The left-back has been vocal in his uncertainty over his future but, as Goal.com exclusively revealed, new manager Louis van Gaal was keen to retain the Frenchman's services.
The 33-year-old triggered a unilateral option to extend a contract worth over £6 million annually into a fourth season with his appearance record under the Dutchman's sacked predecessor, David Moyes.
Evra was a target for Serie A champions Juventus - with a two-year deal on offer - but has now opted to remain at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal has approved United's attempt to sign Luke Shaw from Southampton, his plan is to split left-back duties between the England international and Evra.
The former Monaco defender joined Manchester United in 2006 and has enjoyed a highly successful spell in England, winning five Premier League titles and a Champions League title.
