Cape Town - Manchester United have not given up hope of signing Everton defender Seamus Coleman and may offer a defender as part of the deal.

The Daily Star report that Jonny Evans could be offered to Everton in a player plus cash deal for Seamus Coleman.

Sport24 has previously reported that Everton insist that Coleman is not for sale but new reports suggest the Red Devils have a plan to lure the Republic of Ireland to Old Trafford.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was forced to deploy Antonio Valencia as a makeshift right back but is expected to sign a specialist in the current window.

After failing to convince Dani Alves to make the move to the England, Van Gaal has reportedly made Coleman's signature a priority.

With Everton unwilling to sell, Van Gaal may offer Jonny Evans to the Toffees in order to push through the deal.

Evans has just one year left on his current deal at Old Trafford and has fallen behind Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in the starting lineup.

The emergence of Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett could see Evans used a part payment in a move for Coleman.

Coleman is one the league's most consistent right-backs and has scored 19 goals in 185 appearances for the Toffees.
