the Belgian became one of Everton’s primary attacking weapons, using his power and physical presence to great effect on a regular basis. United fans will remember his display during Everton’s 4-4 draw at Old Trafford, a result that helped turn the title race in Manchester City's favour.
In 2012/13, he picked up where he left off - powering his way through United's defence to score the only goal in Everton's shock 1-0 win in the opening league match. Notably, the goals kept coming and by the end of the season, he was the Toffees' top scorer with 12 strikes to his name.
That was how his Everton career ended, on a high, for within two months of Moyes starting work with the Reds, the pair were reunited at Old Trafford.
“I have worked with Marouane for five years and I’m delighted he has decided to join Manchester United,” Moyes told MUTV. “He is a player with great ability and strength and I think he will make a real difference to our squad.”
