They had an initial £19m proposal for the Frenchman earlier in the week, but were rejected after West Brom also had a £13m deal turned down too.
Man United want to recoup most of the £24m they paid Southampton for Schneiderlin, despite the fact that he hasn’t played regular first-team football during his year at Old Trafford.
Tony Pulis has confirmed his interest in Schneiderlin, but with Everton leading the race for his signature, it doesn’t seem like they’ll be able to lure him to The Hawthorns.
Mourinho has handled this situation the right way and has showcased his intent to change United’s structure of selling players, after years of disappointing transfer fees.
United have been terrible at selling players and the Portuguese boss won’t be willing to let Schneiderlin leave until he gets a deal that will benefit both parties.
It’s a shame that he hasn’t been able to live up to expectations at Old Trafford as he arrived in the summer alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger as a game changer, but has fallen down the pecking order with others on the side with more to offer.
