Manchester United linked with move for Everton star

David Moyes is lining up a sizeable bid for Everton right-back Séamus Coleman, according to the Sunday People.

Having seemingly failed in their bid to sign Everton's left-back, Manchester United are now looking to prise away right-back Séamus Coleman from the Toffees. According to a report in the Sunday People, David Moyes is ready to make a £15 million bid for the player he worked with at Goodison Park.

Coleman has undoubtedly had an impressive season, with the same report suggesting there is also interest from Arsenal for the Irish international.

But, where would he fit in at Old Trafford? He's certainly not a better player than Rafael, though with rumours suggesting that Moyes isn't the Brazilian's biggest fan -- plus the da Silvas' agent being quoted as saying a summer departure is "very likely" -- there is a worrying possibility that Coleman could be being lined up as a replacement.

United could certainly do with a backup at right-back, though it's doubtful that Coleman would be brought in to warm the bench -- especially now he's 25. Perhaps it's better to just stay away from this one altogether, and hope there's no truth to the Rafael rumours.
