Toffees are already preparing for Moyes’ summer exit.
Everton are considering making a move for in-demand Cardiff City head coach Malky Mackay as a replacement for current manager David Moyes should the Scot decide to quit Goodison Park at the end of the season, according to report in the Daily Mirror.
It is an open secret on Merseyside that Moyes is seriously considering his future on Merseyside this summer after eleven years with the Toffees.
Moyes has been offered a new one-year rolling deal for next season by club chairman Bill Kenwright, but the contract has as yet remained unsigned by the Glaswegian as he ponders his future career options.
The Everton boss could decide to remain at the club, move to another Premier League side, or even abroad, with Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 having been recently mentioned as a possible destination. And, there is even talk of Moyes taking a one-year sabbatical from the game.
And, if that were the case, then Kenwright has earmarked the highly-rated Cardiff coach as being the idea man to replace his compatriot at the Goodison helm next season after Mackay recently guided the South Wales side to promotion to the Premier League for the very first time in the club’s history.
