New Everton manager Ronald Koeman is reportedly keen to sign Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin. The 26-year-old star joined the Old Trafford side last season, but failed to cement his place in the starting line-up under Louis van Gaal.
Schneiderlin is currently on international duty with France at Euro 2016, where they will face a quarter-final against Iceland in Paris. However, the midfielder is reportedly attracting interest from Everton, who now have the backing of billionaire investor Farhad Moshiri.
Schneiderlin worked with Koeman at Southampton and the Dutchman is eager to reunite with at Goodison Park, according to De Telegraaf. Koeman is set to make a bid for Schneiderlin as he looks to reshape the Everton squad before the start of the new season.
In April, Schneiderlin confessed he had fallen short of his own expectations since joining United. "I had some good games and a good spell but there's a lot of competition and so even in my time when I didn't play every game I was still learning, still trying to improve and doing my best," Schneiderlin said, according to the Manchester Evening News.
"Since the weeks went on in the season I've felt better and better and of course I know I have plenty more to show to everyone and plenty more in my locker."
It remains to be seen if Schneiderlin is part of Jose Mourinho's plans at United. The new manager has only signed Eric Bailly from Villarreal so far this summer, but is expected to make further additions in the coming weeks and months.
