Everton Expect New United Bid(s) For Duo

Having failed to make any signings for their senior team, Manchester United are expected to return to Everton to bid for Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines again.

On Monday it emerged that the Red Devils had made a combined bid of just £28million for the Toffees duo.

The bid- sanctioned by former Toffees boss David Moyes- valued Fellaini at less than the amount Everton paid for him five years ago, and Baines at just £12million.

Consquently, it was rejected out of hand by the Merseyside club, who were frankly shocked that one of the world’s wealthiest clubs would try to lowball them in such an obvious and futile way.

"Everton received bids from Manchester United for two players,” the Toffees director of communications, Alan Myers, said.

“Those bids were immediately rejected out of hand as derisory and insulting.

“The club did not make public these details as it was vital Roberto Martinez's preparations for the opening game of the Premier League season were not disrupted in any way."

Both Fellaini and Baines are contracted to Everton, and in the case of the Belgian, there is not even a buyout clause in place.

The Goodison Park club remain determined to keep Baines, but it is believed that a big-money offer could tempt them to cash in on Fellaini.

According to The Guardian, Martinez will seek to replace Fellaini with James McCarthy from Wigan and perhaps Gareth Barry on loan from Manchester City if Fellaini were to be sold.

Meanwhile, the Toffees await a new bid for their star duo from their old boss Moyes.

Only this time, they expect him to come back, cap in hand, with a separate and meaningful bid for each Everton player on his Red Devils transfer radar.
