Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard could be in line for a shock return to Old Trafford as new Manchester United manager David Moyes looks to build his own team.
The American 'keeper previously made 77 appearances for the Red Devils after joining the club in 2003.
He left the club four years later following a loan spell at Everton and soon signed for Moyes at Goodison Park.
A source close to the Toffees told SportsDirect News: “David has always liked Tim, as he is the consummate professional.
“He fits the bill if Moyes is looking for a ‘keeper and would love another crack at proving himself at Old Trafford.”
Moyes left the Merseyside club last month to manage Manchester United and there has been much speculation as to whether he would take anyone with him from Everton.
So far, nothing has been confirmed but Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka and Marouane Fellaini were all rumoured to be in the pipeline.
It is Howard, though, who could be the first signing for Moyes.
The 'keeper has made 310 appearances in an Everton shirt, all of them under the management of Moyes, and even scored once against Bolton in January last year.
