Reports this evening said that there had been a £22m deal agreed between the two sides and Schneiderlin was – again – not involved for United as they beat Hull.
“Before the game I was told by Mr Woodward that the situation is close,” he said.
“Morgan is more than probably going to Everton.”
Everton’s spending will pass the £30m mark for the first time in a January transfer window should Schneiderlin sign this month after the signing of Ademola Lookman last week.
With Idrissa Gueye and Schneiderlin in the middle, Everton would be a formidable force to reckon with in midfield, and Evertonians hope that Farhad Moshiri hasn’t quite closed his cheque book just yet.
