As reported last week, Sky sources understand United are very interested in signing the 25-year-old this summer.

Sky Bet football trader Michael White said the decision to pull the market followed 'significant business' on the Southampton player making the move to Old Trafford.

He said: "Interest in Schneiderlin joining Manchester United has increased in the last few days and we had no option but to suspend the betting after laying significant business as short as 1/12."

Everton's Seamus Coleman is also shortening for a move to join Louis van Gaal's summer signings. The full-back is now 5/6 favourite to join the Red Devils after a number of large bets.
