TURIN, Italy -- France left back Patrice Evra has completed a transfer from Manchester United to Italian champion Juventus.

Juventus says it is paying United 1.2 million pounds ($2 million) but that the transfer price will increase to 1.5 million pounds ($2.5 million) if Juventus qualifies for the 2015-16 Champions League.

The Turin club adds that it signed the 33-year-old Evra, who spent the past nine seasons with United, to a two-year contract.

Juventus won Serie A the past three seasons with a three-man defence of Italy internationals Andrea Barzagli, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci. But with Massimiliano Allegri replacing Antonio Conte as coach, the squad could use a four-man backline this season.

Juventus also recently signed forward Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid and has shown interest in Udinese midfielder Roberto Peyrera.

Evra's transfer continues an overhaul on United's back line, which has already seen the departures of long-time defenders Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic this off-season.
