Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has revealed that former Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra is considering his future at the club and was therefore not selected for the team's match against Bologna on Sunday.
The veteran Frenchman has been linked with a move back to his former club this January after spending two-and-a-half years at the Turin-based club; he has also been linked with Valencia.
The 35-year-old has in fact found his chances limited at Juventus, featuring in just six Serie A matches this term and is therefore willing to leave in search of regular football action, according to his agent.
Another Premier League side, West Ham had also previously been linked with a move for Evra, though their manager Slaven Bilic dismissed those reports.
The CEO has revealed that the player concerned is indeed pondering over his future and was therefore not selected for their last match.
The 59-year-old also took time to reveal that his club won't be looking at any possible replacement for Evra if the player leaves.
"Evra was not called up to the squad because he's thinking about his future", Marotta told Sky Italia.
"If he leaves, we will not sign a replacement."
