Everton still keen to seal Morgan Schneiderlin deal

The Toffees have already had a bid for the midfielder turned down

Everton are still hopeful of sealing a deal for Morgan Schneiderlin this month.

According to reports today, talks are still ongoing between the two clubs and the Toffees are still pushing for a move to happen.

West Brom are also eager to sign the Frenchman and the two clubs will have to battle it out to see who can seal his signature first.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman is believed to have the upper hand though and the club have already made an official bid for the player this month, only to have it turned down by Man United.

Man United want £24m

The Red Devils are holding out for around £24m or at least somewhat close to that sum, as they want to recoup all of the money that they originally paid for the former Southampton star.

Jose Mourinho has already claimed that he won’t play either Schneiderlin or Depay until their futures are sorted out and they are both actively available to buy this month.

Schneiderlin has struggled for much first-team action under the Special One as he has been pushed down the pecking order by several of the club’s other midfielders.

Mourinho has preferred to play the likes of Ander Herrera, Paul pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick instead, meaning that Schneiderlin has been forced to sit and watch.

However, if either Everton or West Brom can stump up the £24m that United want, then he could exit Old Trafford this month and get the gametime he craves elsewhere.
