Juventus drop Man Utd and Valencia target Evra as exit door beckons

Even Alex Sandro's absence through injury has not prompted Massimiliano Allegri to call on the Frenchman for Sunday's game with Bologna

Patrice Evra has been dropped by Juventus to add further fuel to reports of the Frenchman's imminent departure from the Serie A champions.

The left-back has been linked with a January move to Valencia and former club Manchester United, having fallen firmly behind Alex Sandro in the pecking order this season.

Valencia interested in Evra

That the Brazil international is missing for Sunday's Serie A fixture with Genoa due to a thigh strain and Evra remains unused by Massimiliano Allegri appears to give a sizable clue to the Frenchman's long-term prospects in Turin.

The champions welcome Roberto Donadoni's side to Juventus Stadium with a four-point lead in the standings, as well as a game in hand, after the mid-season break.
