Patrice Evra has welcomed rumoured interest from Paris Saint-Germain but joked they would have to "kill" Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson to lure him back to France.

Evra's contract with United expires at the end of the 2013-14 campaign but the Reds are regularly linked with Everton left-back Leighton Baines as a long-term successor.

Captaining the side in Nemanja Vidić's absence, the 31-year-old has been at Old Trafford for seven years next month and reaffirmed his happiness in Manchester.

"You would have to kill Ferguson before bringing me to Paris," he told Canal Plus.

"For now, there is nothing to do. I have a year left on my contract. I am at Manchester United. I am captain and I am happy.

"But it's always a pleasure to be wanted by a club such as Paris St Germain, especially as I am Parisian.

"I have never hidden my love of Paris, even though Monaco is still 'my' team. It has always pained me to see the club not win the title or qualify for the Champions League."

Signed for £5m from Monaco in 2006, Evra has been the undisputed first-choice left-back at United for the majority of his time at the club having initially capitalised on Gabriel Heinze's injury.

The Senegalese-born defender has won four Premier League titles, three League Cups, a Champions League and a Club World Cup in seven years with the Red Devils.

He has made 310 appearances for the club, scoring five goals.
