With both Manchester United and Everton welcoming new managers into their clubs this summer, both sets of punters in the Transfer Tavern emanate palpable excitement.
Perhaps more than ever, due to the recent TV deals and wealthy new investment at Goodison Park, the Toffees in the Tavern are confident that they can close the gap on their more illustrious neighbours.
According to Dutch outlet De Telegraaf, the Merseyside outfit could try and do so by signing one of United’s own.
Having appointed former Southampton coach Ronald Koeman as Roberto Martinez’s successor, the club have been linked with a move for Morgan Schneiderlin.
It has been a frustrating year for the 25-year old, who struggled to truly impose himself on first-team proceedings at the Theatre of Dreams despite his previous excellence on the South Coast.
With new United chief Jose Mourinho strongly linked with a move for Nemanja Matic, the Frenchman could soon depart.
Has Schneiderlin been given a fair crack of the whip at Old Trafford? How many TT pints would Mourinho have had to have consumed to sell him?!
