Schneiderlin close to Everton move, says Mourinho

MANCHESTER: Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says the club is close to selling midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin to English Premier League rival Everton.

The 27-year-old Schneiderlin has been told he can leave United after failing to establish himself in the team following his move from Southampton in July 2015.

Speaking after United's 2-0 win over Hull in the English League Cup semi-finals on Tuesday, Mourinho said "Morgan is more than probably going to Everton."

The France international will reportedly move for 24 million pounds ($29 million).

If Schneiderlin does head to Goodison Park, he will be reunited with Everton manager Ronald Koeman, who was the midfielder's manager at Southampton for two years.
