Toffees Fume At United Bid For Duo

Reports in the Merseyside media have emerged detailing a farcical bid by Manchester United for the Everton duo of Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini.

Baines has long been a target for the Red Devils, and having failed to land their primary midfield targets, they are believed to have settled on big-haired Belgian, Fellaini.

However, it is now common knowledge that the £23.5million buyout clause in Fellaini’s contract with Everton recently expired.

And so according to the Liverpool Echo, “Everton have been left outraged” by United’s meagre £16million bid for Fellaini.

To add insult to injury, at the same time, United made a derisory £12million bid for England international left-back Baines.

The sum total of their bid for the two players is just £28million- less than what they were willing to pay in their ill-fated pursuit of Barcelona’s king of the assist, Cesc Fabregas.

The Echo says that there is now bad blood between the Toffees and United.

Everton believe that their former manager David Moyes has acted with predatory instincts, in a bid to destabilise two of the stars at his old club.

Fellaini’s true value is estimated as greater than his expired buyout clause, and Baines is regarded as one of the top players in his position in the English Premier League.

And so the Toffees have bitterly laughed off United’s approach for the duo, and warned the champions to stay away from Goodison Park until they are official visitors in the league later this season.
