Morgan Schneiderlin targeted by AC Milan

The Series A giants AC Milan are reportedly lining up a January move for Manchester United outcast Morgan Schneiderlin, according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.

The 26-year-old midfielder has played just six minutes of Premier League football this season.

The Frenchman needs more regular first-team football and a potential loan move has been suggested, with Premier League outfit Crystal Palace said to be interested.

However, the reports have emerged that the San Siro outfit are also keeping a close eye on his situation and could make a move in January for him.

The Red Devils paid an initial £24m to secure Schneiderlin from Southampton in 2015. His contract does not expire until June 2019 so he won’t be available for cheap should Milan want to sign him permanently.
