Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is set to undergo a medical at Everton today ahead of a potential transfer.
The Frenchman hasn’t played regular football at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho and informed the Portuguese boss that he wanted to leave in the January transfer window.
He is yet to make a Premier League start this season and there are no doubts that he is frustrated over his situation as recent reports claimed he has grown impatient ahead a move to Ronald Koeman’s side.
Samuel Luckhurst confirmed the Frenchman’s medical while also claiming a fee is yet to be agreed.
#mufc and Everton still yet to agree a fee but Schneiderlin should sign in time to make debut vs City.

It’s hard to blame Schneiderlin for wanting to leave Man United sooner rather than later, only playing 90 minutes once under Mourinho against Feyenoord in September, and he hasn’t started since United’s 2-1 defeat to Fenerbahce back in November.
He arrived at Old Trafford with high expectations and was fairly promising in his first season at the club, but he’s fallen down the pecking order and hasn’t been given a role under Mourinho.
It’s a shame that he hasn’t lived up to his potential, but there isn’t a spot in the side for the Frenchman and he’ll be desperate to be back under Koeman in the coming weeks.
