Manchester United legend Paul Scholes tips Tom Cleverley to join Everton

by Ben Topliss

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes believes Tom Cleverley will move to Everton when the summer transfer window opens.

Cleverley joined Aston Villa from Man United on loan last summer but struggled during the early part of the campaign.

However, the Englishman has gone from strength to strength under Tim Sherwood and has helped Villa reach the FA Cup final.

Cleverley will be available as a free agent at the end of the season and Scholes feels he will end up at Goodison Park.

Speaking about Cleverley, Scholes said: ”I have a feeling that he might go to Everton. I think Martinez likes him. I think he will suit their style of play.

“He is a very good footballer, he likes to get forward, he likes to score goals, he is very good in possession.

“Everton have a rich history of signing former Manchester United players.”

Everton have taken players such as Darren Gibson and Tim Howard from United in the past and they may well do the same with Cleverley.

While not good enough for United, the 25-year-old is a solid Premier League player and would be a shrewd purchase for mid-table clubs, particularly on a free transfer. He was often the butt of jokes at Old Trafford but the majority of fans will wish him well in the future.
