Koeman secretly filmed telling Everton fans that signing both Mata and Witsel is ‘possible’

Not Ronald Coy-man


Everton fans, what would you think of this?

Everton have been linked with moves for the world and his mother since the appointment of Ronald Koeman as manager last month.

Everyone from Shane Long to Yannick Bolasie has been rumoured to be on Koeman’s hit list.

But now we have confirmation (of sorts) straight from the horse’s mouth that deals for Juan Mata and Axel Witsel are “possible”.

Koeman was secretly filmed by a fan as he signed autographs on Friday. He is asked if there are any new signings coming and he says they are working hard to get transfer business completed.

Then he is asked about Mata and Witsel specifically and he says “it is possible”.

Mata, who played for Koeman at Valencia, is likely to leave Old Trafford following the arrival of Jose Mourinho, who sold the Spaniard to Manchester United when at Chelsea.

Belgium midfielder Witsel is also expected to leave Zenit St Petersburg this summer and is being tracked by Napoli as well as other leading European clubs.
