Morgan Schneiderlin attracting interest from European giant

Morgan Schneiderlin was in huge demand when he left Southampton a little over a year ago.

In hindsight, the midfielder must be wondering whether he made the right move in joining Manchester United, where he hasn’t started a Premier League game this season – playing just six minutes.

Jose Mourinho could not have made it more obvious that the 27-year-old isn’t in his plans, but he’s already attracting interest from elsewhere.

The Sun report that a rejuvenated AC Milan are ready to offer him a way out of Old Trafford.


The Rossoneri could nab him for around £20million, just under what United paid the Saints. Money is no object to the Red Devils, but obviously, they would like as big a return on their investment as possible.

Fortunately, Milan are in a position to spend big thanks to their takeover, and the Frenchman ought to be flattered that the side sitting third in Serie A – just a point behind Roma in second – are keen to take him on.

With Michael Carrick no longer able to play regularly, though, it’s a pity United haven’t got the best out of Schneiderlin, who could have potentially complemented Paul Pogba in a similar way if he’d been given his chance.
