Reports claim that the Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin could be available in January.

Crystal Palace are said to be considering a bid, with Spurs also named as a club likely to be interested.

Schneiderlin played under Mauricio Pochettino at Southampton and our manager has tried to bring the French international to White Hart Lane in the past.

He was a target during Pochettino’s first summer in charge, with Schneiderlin hitting out at Southampton for blocking his move to Tottenham in the summer of 2014.

Schneiderlin eventually joined Manchester United in 2015, but has struggled to establish himself at Old Trafford. Spurs were rumoured to have made another move for him on deadline day of this season, only for Jose Mourinho to assure the player he was in his first-team plans.

Just two appearances in the Premier League this season tell a different story. With Tottenham having looked short of quality in central midfield when Mousa Dembele has been unavailable this season, could Schneiderlin add some much needed depth to this key area?



    • I agree.

      I wouldn’t want to block the progress of the likes of Wink – but Schneiderian played Poch’s system perfectly. It was him who transitioned play forward rapidly and added forward momentum, as well as putting in a solid defensive shift. He has played with Wanyama and it worked well. And is probably the perfect competition for Dembele – not quite as defensive but better offensively. For his part, he would be working with a manager who knows him, and knows how to use and improve him.

      Nothing is cast in stone, there are no guarantees that it would work out. But if we can get him I think we should.

  1. Oh yes, he is not a man rock like Dembélé and he doesn’t have his dribbling and holding skills, but he has that killer pass that only Eriksen and Alderweireld have at Spurs. We are already lacking it in CM since Modric left.

  2. No don’t want him now because he can’t get a starting place in an average team like Man Utd he stands no chance of getting into a good team like Spurs would prefer Isco, defensively we are fine offensively we lack creativity and goals
