Manchester United have this week made an official offer for Leighton Baines from Everton, according to the Times Newspaper.
Baines was one of the players that immediately got linked to moving to Manchester United this summer, following his previous manager David Moyes to Old Trafford.
However, the 28-year-old mentioned in an interview earlier in the week that he was eager to work under new Everton manager Roberto Martinez.
The Times report that the official bid for the England defender is in the region of £10million to £12million.
David Moyes has been back in England since the weekend from his family holiday and all be it, not officially starting his job at Manchester United until the 1st July, has very much been working behind the scenes with Leighton Baines offers and the hopeful, completion transfer of Thiago Alcantara.
With Patrice Evra likely to be first choice next season for the Champions in possibly his last season for the club, Baines coming in could see more rotation at left-back. Alexander Buttner and Fabio Da Silva will be rushed further down the pecking order for first-team places.
