Man United misfit Schneiderlin close to big money Everton movePublished December 15, 2016
Manchester United misfit Morgan Schneiderlin is nearing the end of his Old Trafford nightmare. The Mirror is one of many news outlets reporting that the France international is close to a move to Everton. That would reunite him with his former Southampton boss Ronald Koeman. Schneiderlin is a contender for the biggest flop in English football history.
Having arrived last summer off the back of impressive performances for Southampton, he failed to become a mainstay of Louis van Gaal’s United side. A £25 million signing, he made 47 appearances over two seasons with the club, scoring once and failing to have a stand-out performance during that time.
If Koeman can get him to replicate his Saints form (for a reported £24 million) then he’ll have a brilliant player on his hands. Part of Schneiderlin’s failure at Old Trafford is down to his manager’s seemingly not knowing what to do with him. He’s the biggest argument for a sporting director at United.
