Everton is expected to hand midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin his club debut on Sunday against Manchester City.
The midfielder arrived on Thursday in a £20million move from Manchester United in good fitness, and has been named in the team to face Manchester City by manager Ronald Koeman. However, Koeman said he will wait to see if Schneiderlin is ready to start right away, along with weighing up new signing Ademola Lookman's debut. "Morgan’s fitness is okay. He’s not had a lot of game-time but to improve that you need to play and you need minutes. We will make a decision tomorrow, but he’ll be involved in the squad on Sunday. Ademola also has a chance to be involved." Jan 13 - 9:30 AM

Everton manager Ronald Koeman is wasting no time in digging into the club's transfer kitty with a move for Morgan Schneiderlin.

Schneiderlin only appeared in three Premier League matches this season under new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and now joins the Toffees for a £20 million fee that could rise to £24 million with incentives. The 27-year-old signs a four-and-a-half-year contract through the summer of 2021. Said Schneiderlin: "Everton is a big club in the history of English football. I’ve always loved the atmosphere in the stadium. I’ve always liked playing here. I can’t wait to play and to represent this great Club. There is a manager in place here that I know, I know he can get the best out of me, I know his style and how he likes to play football."

Manchester United have agreed a fee with Everton for the transfer of French international Morgan Schneiderlin.

The 27 year old, who arrived at Old Trafford for £25 million in July 2015 to Louis Van Gaal from Southampton will depart for an initial fee of £22 million. It is being reported by some outlets that the deal could rise as high as £24 million if add-ons are triggered. Schneiderlin was consistently a member of the first team in his first season at the club, earning himself 25 starts in the PL. This season, his league appearances have dwindled to just three as a substitute. Schneiderlin will link up with Ronald Koeman at Everton, for whom he excelled before his move to the north.

It seems to be almost certain that Morgan Schneiderlin will leave Manchester United in the January transfer window.

On Monday it was reported that the Red Devils rejected a £19 million bid from Everton after previously turning down a million less from Tony Pulis' West Brom. The Toffees are keen to replace Idrissa Gueye as he leaves for AFCON duty for the next few weeks with Senegal. Both interested clubs will have to increase their bids if they are to acquire the French international, with United believed to be trying to recoup the majority of the £24 million they paid Southampton in July 2015 in spite of Schneiderlin's exclusion from Mourinho's United set up.

Lassana Diarra has been ruled out of Euro 2016 because of a knee injury earning Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin a reprieve.

Schneiderlin was named in Didier Deschamps pre-tournament squad but failed to make the cut: "It's time for me to leave the camp and to be back home with my family and friends," revealed the 26-year-old following the news of his omission. However, the French Federation confirmed on Tuesday that his international teammate Diarra was withdrawn from group after expressing concerns about his ‘inability to compete [in the Euros] to the best of his ability’ and a decision was taken to replace the Olympic Marseille player of the year nominee. Diarra has been struggling with an ongoing knee problem which restricted his involvement to just 45 minutes in the recent friendly win over Cameroon. The hosts kick off the 2016 European Championship in the opener against Romania on June 10.

Louis Van Gaal can at least smile about the fact that one of his potential ten absentees will be available for the trip to the South Coast as Morgan Schneiderlin has recovered from his hip injury.

The France international's absence would have meant that neither of he nor Bastian Schweinsteiger would have been available to partner Michael Carrick in Week 16. As it turns out, United will still be without the German midfielder plus Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Wayne Rooney and Ander Herrera. The team names might not lead you to believe that this will be an interesting match but the injuries might make it very interesting.

Morgan Schneiderlin will miss Tuesday nights’ UEFA Champions League game in Wolfsburg through injury but Paddy McNair has travelled with the group to Germany.

Schneiderlin limped off moments before half-time on Saturday at Old Trafford due to a hip problem and despite the player confirming he was OK post-match, Louis van Gaal revealed the former Saint was a doubt for the crucial midweek tie. "He is a little bit stiff in the hip, so we have to wait and see as always on that. I hope they can play on Tuesday but it is a very short [turnaround] so it is a very big question mark." Michael Carrick is expected to partner Bastian Schweinsteiger in front of the back four. United will also be without the services of Wayne Rooney and Marcos Rojo but McNair has been included in the squad. The defender was replaced during the break against West Ham after taking a knock to the ankle.

Morgan Schneiderlin missed the mid-week trip to Moscow with illness but will be available again for the Week 12 match with West Brom.

The method behind Van Gaal's holding midfield choices has been mysterious. Logic would dictate that United's best pairing would be Schneiderlin paired with whichever of Carrick or Schweinsteiger is fittest and in the best form. Instead, it appears that Van Gaal just chooses two names from a hat to start in the holding roles assuming all three are healthy. You'd expect that Schneiderlin will start this weekend now that he's healthy but it isn't something that you should be counting on as a 100% certainty.

Southampton are moving closer to a move for Jordy Clasie that has been widely rumored since Morgan Schneiderlin made his intention to leave this summer known.

Ronald Koeman has been linked to the Eredivisie star for a year or more with the knowledge that Morgan Schneiderlin's time at St. Mary's was short. With Schneiderlin now at Manchester United, the inevitable seems like it is coming to pass. The 24-year-old Clasie will join Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum as high profile imports from Holland's first tier. Clasie, like Schneiderlin, is a holding midfielder who is equally adept at covering the back four and igniting the attack with an incisive pass. It might take him a little time to adapt but expect the Saints to continue their recent tradition of playing the transfer market well and backfilling leaving stars with similar talent for less money.

Manchester United today confirmed that Morgan Schneiderlin had signed a 4-year deal while an announcement quickly followed revealing that Bastian Schweinsteiger had also joined the club for the next 3-years.

The double signing was officially made public moments before United confirmed their US tour squad which included both players plus summer signings Memphis Depay and Matteo Darmian. Schneiderlin ends a 7-year association with Southampton "He's a very talented player with great energy and ability. His skills will complement our players" said Louis van Gaal. Schweinsteiger spent 13 seasons at Bayern and arrives with a wealth of domestic, European and international experience "Manchester United is the only club I would have left Munich for" confirmed the German captain at his press conference. If anyone did harbour any lingering doubts about Uniteds’ title credentials then this latest move represents a real statement of intent.

Manchester United have confirmed the move of Morgan Schneiderlin to the Old Trafford club from Southampton.

It has been a big few days for Manchester United with the arrivals of Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and now Morgan Schneiderlin. With Manchester United supporters surely getting nervous about the number of departures from Old Trafford the boost in the form of big names will be welcomed. United had a gap at the base of their midfield last season when Michael Carrick wasn't available and they have doubled down on a solution with the twin arrivals of Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin. One thing for sure is that United will have a strong option in the holding role each and every weekend.

Morgan Schneiderlin has reportedly signed for Manchester United today despite the arrival of Bastian Schweinsteiger making him seemingly redundant.

It's going to be a crowded central midfield at Old Trafford with Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin joining Michael Carrick (when healthy) and Ander Herrera who came on strong at the end of last season. Unless Louis Van Gaal plans on moving Schweinsteiger back to his original wing position (unlikely) there is going to be an expensive central midfielder or two on the bench every week.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United have made an official bid for Morgan Schneiderlin with £20 million the mooted figure.

Earlier in the week Ronald Koeman was quoted as saying that no significant bids had been made for the France international. Apparently, the Red Devils decided it was time to change that and start the process of bringing the Saints holding midfielder to Old Trafford. While the final number may end up being closer to £25 million than £20 million, it seems only a matter of time until the deal is done. With Sami Khedira, Ilkay Gudnagon, and Geoffrey Kondogbia already off the market and Arsenal seemingly focused on William Carvalho if they bring in a new holding midfielder, the path seems pretty clear for United to get their man.

The rumor mill has Morgan Schneiderlin moving closer to a transfer from Southampton to Manchester United as the week draws to the close.

With a fee of between £20million (rising to £25) and a flat £24million mooted depending on the source, the tide appears to be shifting from Schneiderlin-to-Arsenal to Schneiderlin-to-United. Either club would do well to pick up the France international with United probably having a more acute need given Michael Carrick's age and injury issues last season. Arsenal have an ascending player in Francis Coquelin in the holding role and a variety of options to play next to Coquelin in the form of Cazorla, Ramsey, Wilshere, and Oxlade-Chamberlain. The question at Arsenal is what happens if Coquelin is injured/suspended? There isn't really a Plan B beyond Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini who both appear to be past their prime.

Morgan Schneiderlin would only leave Southampton for a team that plays in the Champions League.

This basically narrows down his suitors to Arsenal at the moment, as they are the only team rumored to be going after him that are in the Premier League and are playing Champions League football next season. Schneiderlin said he is happy in England and would like to remain there, and also mentioned he is happy to stay at Southampton if there isn't an acceptable offer for him from a big club. It sounds like Schneiderlin's future is undecided so keep an eye out for rumors this summer.
