Man United's Schneiderlin close to Everton switch: Mourinho


Manchester, Jan 11 (IANS): Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho has confirmed that French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin might move to Everton, with the latter reportedly willing to splurge around $25 million.

"I can't give details but before the match, I was told by (club's executive vice-chairman Ed) Woodward that the situation is close. Morgan is more than probably going to Everton," Mourinho was quoted as saying by Sky Sports after the 2-0 win over Hull in the English Football League (EFL) Cup on Tuesday.

"I'm sad and I'm happy. I'm sad because I like him. I am happy because this is what he wants. He wants to play and be an important player in a team. He is a very good professional," the Portuguese tactician added.

Schneiderlin has struggled to cement his place in the side after moving to Manchester from league rivals Southampton in 2015 for 24 million pounds ($29 million).
