The Republic of Ireland international has been enjoyed a good run of games in recent weeks, starting five of Everton’s last six Premier League fixtures.
Coleman’s shown his versatility under Carlo Ancelotti as well, playing in a back four and a back five this season, and his impressive displays have led to Gilroy urging the Red Devils to make a move for the 32-year-old.
He said: (2:22) “If you’re one of those top teams, Coleman’s performances at right-back, at right-wing back, as the third man in a three-man defence would suggest that he could legitimately hold his own, or play a role, for almost any team in the Premier League.
“Would Man United not be happy having him as the third man in a trio of central defenders? Suddenly adding a little bit of pace next to the slowcoaches beside him, or as the right-wing back, or somebody to teach Aaron Wan-Bissaka, ‘this is how you’re supposed to play’, right.
“So, Bissaka plays 70% of the game, Coleman plays the other 30%, but suddenly there’s strength in depth and with the big European games, you’re like, ‘come on now Seamus, come on’.”
Do Manchester United need to sign a world-class centre-back?

United’s transfer policy under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seen the 20-time English champions priorities younger acquisitions, so we can’t see them making a move for Coleman this summer.
