Evra ‘sounded out’ by Betis

Real Betis are weighing up a move for free agent Patrice Evra to strengthen the left side of their defence, according to reports.

The France international terminated his contract with Olympique Marseille after he was banned to June 30 2018 from UEFA competition.

It all arose from an incident in the warm-up for Marseille’s Europa League game with Vitoria Guimaraes, which saw Evra kick a fan during an altercation.

A report in Le 10 Sport, as cited by Estadio Deportivo, states Los Verdiblancos have ‘sounded out’ a move for the 36-year-old but the full-back’s wage demands may rule out any potential move.
