Leighton Baines has asked Everton Football Club to agree a deal to sell him to Manchester United, according to the Independent.
Manchester United looked set to put in another bid to bring both Fellaini and Leighton Baines to Old Trafford before their next fixture against Liverpool on Sunday.
Baines, who United are valuing at £12million, wants to rejoin his former manager and would like the challenge of competing for the league title as well as experience in the Champions League, well who wouldn’t?
Everton manager Roberto Martinez said earlier this week that there had been no fresh bid, but Moyes seems sure the Premier League champions will try again before the window closes, with Baines putting in his request to leave.
If United are to get both Fellaini and Baines then the fee reported for both will rise to £35million.
Asked last week when he had any sympathy for the players, David Moyes said:
“I definitely do. But I also know that if I was the Everton manager and Sir Alex had come asking for Baines and Fellaini, I would have found it very difficult to keep them. I always felt the right thing to do was what was right for the players.”
Do you think Baines will be good for Manchester United?
