Manchester United have set Premier League rivals Everton and West Brom a price in excess of £20m for out-of-favour midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The former Southampton man, who arrived for an initial fee of £24m in 2015, under Louis Van Gaal, has been a victim of Jose Mourinho’s Old Trafford overhaul and has seen his chances extremely limited this season.

With former manager Ronald Koeman at Goodison Park and Tony Pulis at West Brom both chasing a deal for the France international, he looks set to leave Manchester in January, but at a price that suits the Red Devils.

Speaking on the matter, the former Chelsea manager was adamant that they cannot stand in the way of Schneiderlin, but that he will leave on his terms.

“The club and the board are totally with me but as I have said before if a player is not having lots of minutes and really wants to leave we have no right to stop him if the conditions are right,” said the Portuguese.

“At this moment we have not received one single offer we are going to accept.”

The 27-year-old, who spent seven years at Southampton before moving to Old Trafford, has just shy of 130 Premier League appearances to his name, although just 32 of them have been made in a United shirt.
