Report: Manchester United interested in Everton duo


Manchester United are interested in Everton duo Seamus Coleman and Romelu Lukaku, according to the Independent.

The report claims Jose Mourinho is keen to sign a new right-back and has identified Coleman as a key target, but is also eager to strengthen the team’s attack with the signing of Romelu Lukaku.

Mourinho sold the 23-year-old Belgian striker to Everton two years ago, but it seems like he’s now keen to work with him again and could rival Chelsea and AC Milan for his signature.

It’s important to note that Lukaku’s agent is Mino Raiola, who helped United sign three of his clients last summer – Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba.

Lukaku could be joined at Old Trafford by Coleman, who would significantly strengthen United’s right-back position.

The 27-year-old Republic of Ireland international has started the season very well under new Toffees boss Ronald Koeman and is one of the best full-backs in the Premier League.

While United could very well be interested in the players, it’d be hard to imagine Everton letting them go given new Everton owner FarhadMoshiri’s financial strength and ambitions for the club.

Moshiri wants to see Everton play in the Champions League and challenge for trophies and it definitely won’t happen if the club sells its best players to domestic rivals.
