London: Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra is reportedly being targeted by French clubs Paris-Saint Germain (PSG) and Monaco, both of who are ready to offer him a whopping four-year contract worth 31.2 million pounds.

Evra will be out of contract at the end of the season and knows United boss David Moyes has plans to sign Everton`s Leighton Baines to replace him.

According to a Newspaper, the Frenchman insisted that although he `loves` United, he wants his future sorted before the World Cup in Brazil this summer, and the report added that a return to his home country as a free agent would see him almost double his current United wage of around 85,000 pounds-a-week.

The report mentioned that Evra has the pick of the two wealthiest clubs in the French League, with Monaco wanting him back after selling him to United seven years ago for a fee of 5.5 million pounds.

But PSG, managed by former United defender Laurent Blanc, has claimed that they are clear favourites to win the battle after having worked with him for France.
