Paul Scholes considered moving to Everton

Former Manchester United midfielder admitted that he considered joining Everton when he came out of retirement.

The Englishman retired from football in 2011 and then made a U-turn a year later and while he continued with United until he hanged his boots, he told DAZN via Metro, that he considered making a move to Goodison Park.

"I came back in September with Warren Joyce and the U23s and I was training every day. I felt as fit as I'd probably ever had done after having four months off – it was just the break I needed. I said to Joyce that I wanted to play again-I just wanted to play.

"Where it was I don't care. I didn't expect United to want me back. I spoke to Phil Neville and he said: "Come and play for Everton".  I've never really wanted to play for anyone else or be involved with any other club but if that was the only option I had then I might have done it, I don't know," Scholes said.

On his return, Scholes helped United to another Premier League title before retiring officially in 2013.
