Manchester United duo of Daley Blind and Morgan Schneiderlin has been linked with moves to Premier League club Arsenal and Everton respectively.
According to the Mirror, Blind has emerged as a shock target for Arsenal. Report says new Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is yet to decide whether the Dutch international is his type of player.
It’s believed that Mourinho believes the 26-year-old is too small to be used as a centre-defender, as he was regularly used under Louis van Gaal last season.
Schneiderlin will be surplus to requirements at Manchester United should the Special One completes a deal for Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic. Mourinho wants his team to have more of a physical presence and views Matic as the perfect player to beef up his midfield, according to the Mirror.
Ronald Koeman is said to be eyeing Schneiderlin’s situation ahead of a possible swoop, as he is hoping to sign him for Everton. Schneiderlin worked with Ronald Koeman during his time at Southampton and a reunion at Goodison Park look imminent.
Should Mourinho make him available for sale, Everton will reportedly be expected to pay up the £25m United paid to sign Schneiderlin last summer to do a deal.
Daley Blind and Morgan Schneiderlin don’t look like Arsenal’s kind of player. Arsenal shouldn’t waste money on him.
