Metro claim that David Moyes is ready to issue a plea to his former club Everton in order to get them to sell Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.
The duo have been constantly linked with a move to link up with their former manager this summer and now it seems despite Everton playing hard ball, Moyes is determined to force through the transfers.
After offering a joint bid for the duo that was considered insulting at best, the Manchester United manager has now claimed that both players should be allowed to leave because not only is it what they want, but it will also further their careers.
Moyes spoke and noted that: “There’s a mixed market at the moment.
“Nobody’s quite sure where the price is just now. We’ve had offers for players which we think are quite small.
“I can see where other clubs might be thinking there’s not enough value for their players as well.
“I definitely have sympathy for Everton, but I also know if I had been Everton manager and Sir Alex Ferguson had come asking for Baines and Fellaini I’d have found it very difficult to keep them.
“I always thought the right thing to do was the right thing for players.
“Roberto is new in his job and I’m sure he’ll get to understand how Everton work.”
As one of our punters quips, it seems not only has Moyes inherited the managerial role at Old Trafford from Sir Alex Ferguson, but he has also taken on his hypocrisy. How the Scotsman can go on about doing what is best for the players when he is keeping Wayne Rooney at a club he is desperate to leave seems rather strange.
Will Moyes eventually get his hands on Baines and Fellaini before September 2nd? Let us know your thoughts below.
