Manchester United have agreed a £24million deal to sell Morgan Schneiderlin to Everton, according to reports from Sky Sports.
The news broke last night after manager Jose Mourinho confirmed the transfer himself during a post-match interview after United’s 2-0 EFL Cup semi-final win over Hull City.
Schneiderlin’s Old Trafford career has been put in doubt ever since Mourinho’s arrival as the Special One has hardly used him in his 3-man midfield system.
After weeks of frustration, Schneiderlin is now ready to play regular football again after the Frenchman was pictured arriving for his medical with the Merseyside club.

This transfer must come as a relief for both Schnederlin and Man United as the club will get close to £24million to strengthen their squad and the player will get to play regular football.
Schneiderlin has worked with Koeman before and will be hoping to kick-start his career under the Dutch manager once again. Alongside Idrissa Gueye, the French midfielder can form a solid pairing at the heart of Everton’s midfield.
