Ronald Koeman has not even been appointed Everton manager yet and already the Dutchman might have a headache in anticipation for a hectic summer.

Between John Stones and Romelu Lukaku speculation, the Dutchman has a whole lot of sweet talking to do shortly, but is Seamus Coleman about to add to his woes?

Italian outlet Tuttosport reported on Wednesday that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was ready to sell right-back Matteo Darmian in a development which could, and perhaps should, have Everton fans on edge.

In May, it was reported by Spanish publication Sport that Mourinho had earmarked the talented Irishman to solve the Red Devils' right-back problems.

If the reports from Italy are in any way accurate then Manchester United are going to need a new right-back - and who better than one of the Premier League's finest?

The 27-year-old has been one of the division's strongest and most consistent performers in that role for a while now and it may only be a matter of time before an elite club picks him up.

The worrying thought from an Everton point of view is whether he could resist the allure of joining a Mourinho-managed Manchester United? Not many could. It's once-in-a-lifetime stuff.

Koeman's arrival is exciting, but so was Roberto Martinez's appointment in 2013 and Coleman, whom the Spanish manager inherited from the David Moyes era, has already seen one false dawn.

Is he willing to potentially witness another one at the expense of joining a massive project at the Theatre of Dreams? If Manchester United come knocking, Everton fans must brace themselves for Coleman to answer.
