Tom Cleverley linked with surprise £6m switch from United

Everton are preparing a shock £6million swoop for Manchester United outcast Tom Cleverley, as Roberto Martinez looks to strengthen his squad for next season.

An article in the Surrey Mirror solidifies rumours that the Goodison Park outfit are interested in taking on the struggling central midfielder, despite the fact that he’s been heavily criticised for under-performing this season. The 24-year-old has widely been chastised for the appearances he’s made at Old Trafford this term, and is expected to be part of the deadwood that Louis van Gaal will ship out of the club when he is appointed as manager.

The report in question claims that Martinez wants Cleverley to bolster his own midfield, and a move to Merseyside would certainly give the Englishman a chance to rebuild his reputation. It’s thought that a £6million offer will be submitted to United, which will likely be enough for last season’s Premier League champions to consent to his sale without too much protest.

Cleverley certainly won’t be alone if he does indeed leave Manchester this summer, as a number of the players currently on the books aren’t deemed good enough to carry out the club’s ambitions. The likes of Nani, Anderson, Alexander Buttner, Patrice Evra, Ashley Young and Javier Hernandez face uncertain futures under Van Gaal, and could be part of a mass exodus.
