Patrice Evra has given his biggest hint yet that he will leave Manchester United at the end of his season by suggesting that 'personal reasons' will prevent him signing a new contract at Old Trafford.

The 32-year-old has spent nine seasons at the club winning five league titles and the Champions League but he is now ready to end his relationship with the Red Devils and seek pastures new in the summer.

Asked whether he was concerned about his contract situation Evra told Telefoot: "No not at all [concerned]. It is a personal thing.

"It is not that Manchester United do not want me to sign a new contract. This whole thing is personal.

"Manchester United would like me to finish my career there but this is something personal."

While Evra failed to elaborate any further on his plans the announcement could see United rekindle their interest in Everton's Leighton Baines who they failed to sign during the most recent transfer window.

Evra has been summoned to a hearing with the French Football Federation after labelling ex-France internationals Bixente Lizarazu and Luis Fernandez "bums" and "parasites" following criticism of his recent performances.
