Jose Mourinho has made no secret of his frustration at United's transfer business this summer as Brazilian midfielder Fred has been the only significant addition so far with Lee Grant arriving as a third-choice goalkeeper while Diogo Dalot is a young full-back for the future. Now, it seems they have set their sights on Chelsea outcast Zouma. Manchester United need a defensive upgrade on the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones and Zouma is certainly that.
The deal for Zouma was also expected after a deal sheet was submitted, but it took until Friday afternoon for confirmation, with the Frenchman becoming Everton's seventh signing of the summer.
Zouma joined Chelsea as a highly-rated teenager in 2014 from St. Etienne and has gone on to feature in two Premier League winning campaigns for the London club.
Striker Batshuayi, 24, has joined Spanish side Valencia, while French defender Zouma, 23, has moved to Chelsea's Premier League rivals Everton. Great news for Manchester United fans.
