The duo are destined to leave Old Trafford during the forthcoming transfer window after having failed to make an impression on new manager Jose Mourinho, and it looks like Ronald Koeman’s Blues have beaten off stiff competition to secure their signatures.

Last week, it emerged that Depay and Schneiderlin had been left out of the Red Devils squad to face Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League in a bid to ensure that stayed fit ahead of impending January moves.

In the market for a new wide man and central midfielder, amongst other things, Koeman’s Everton quickly raced to the front of the queue.

The Dutchman knows fellow countryman Depay from their time together in Holland and confirmed his interest in signing the winger last month, while Schneiderlin was a key part of his successful Southampton team and is believed to view a reunion with Koeman at Goodison Park as the best way of reigniting his stuttering career.

Tottenham and Roma have also been linked with Depay in recent days, with Spurs also rumoured to have an interest in Frenchman Schneiderlin, but Koeman’s influence looks to have been the telling factor in negotiations.

Formal talks have already taken place between Everton and United over the duo, and the Manchester Evening News today claim that both players are destined to join the Merseysiders in the coming weeks.

The Old Trafford club expect to recoup the fee of around £24 million paid to Southampton for Schneiderlin in 2015, while Depay’s future is less certain, with both a permanent transfer and a temporary loan deal mooted in the press.
