Man United & Chelsea eye January Everton raid

Manchester United and Chelsea are both plotting January moves for Everton full-back Seamus Coleman, according to reports from The Express.

The Republic of Ireland was one of the Premier League’s very best right-sided defenders last season, with his rampaging displays from the Toffees’ backline almost helping the Merseysiders to Champions League qualification.

Although Everton are desperate to keep the 25-year-old at Goodison Park, United and Chelsea are both circling.

The ‘big boys’ are considering January offers for Coleman, with Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho keen to bolster their right-back options.

The duo are ready to pay around £20m for the attacking-minded ace, with the lure of a big contract with either side potentially appealing to the player himself.

Chelsea were thought to be after Daniel Alves of Barcelona, yet reports in Spain suggest that the Brazilian may extend his contract at the Camp Nou, while Rafael’s erratic showings at United are seen as a concern.
