And it will cost them only £10 million next summer. But what has Carlo Ancelotti have to say on the transfer speculation? Not a lot, because we’re talking about Leighton Baines.
Following his impressive performance against Chelsea last weekend, German giants Bayern Munich sent a scout to watch Baines vs his former club Wigan and were pleased with what they saw.
Baines, under a long contract at Everton, could be tempted by the prospect of regular Champions League football, silverware and the chance of boosting his international credentials.
An excellent crosser of the ball, attacking and composed under pressure and defensively tight whilst strong in the air given his size, the young left back is a manager’s dream.
