Report: Everton considering a shock deal with Manchester United for midfielder


According to reports from the Daily Star, Premier League outfit Everton are planning a surprise move for Manchester United outcast Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Jose Mourinho had made it clear in no uncertain terms that the services of Bastian Schweinsteiger was no longer required when he arrived to the club this summer and as a result, the former Germany captain has been unceremoniously ostracized at Old Trafford so far during the current campaign.

Schweinsteiger was initially even barred from training with the first team and while the 32-year-old recently was allowed to link up with the rest of the squad, Mourinho has made it clear that the midfielder is unlikely to be featuring.

Schweinsteiger set for Everton move?

With Schweinsteiger’s career at United all but over, the Bayern Munich legend is expected to be leaving Old Trafford during the January transfer window and a move to the MLS has been seen as a real possibility for the World Cup winner.

However in surprise reports from the Daily Star, it has been claimed that Schweinsteiger could well be handed a chance to stay in the Premier League as Everton are believed to be interested in securing his services.

With James McCarthy currently out injured and Gareth Barry entering the twilight of his career, Everton boss Ronald Koeman is in the market to sign a new midfielder this winter and it is believed that the Dutchman has identified Schweinsteiger as an option due to his vast experience as well as apparent availability.
