Manchester United boss David Moyes is expected to make a joint bid for former charges Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines in the coming days according to The Guardian.
United have already have already had a £12 million offer for Baines rejected, but are ready to test the resolve of Everton chairman Bill Kenwright. While Fellaini is also on Moyes’ radar, Cesc Fabregas remains a prime target for the Scot.
Moyes has not completely disbanded the thought of making another bid for the Barcelona midfielder and will continue to monitor the Spaniard’s situation.
Fellaini meanwhile has his heart set on a move to Old Trafford, with the Belgian particularly keen to maintain his relationship with Moyes.
The new United boss also has a disgruntled Wayne Rooney to deal with. Moyes is said to be considering giving Rooney a run out in Rio Ferdinand’s testimonial against Sevilla tomorrow.
The England forward believes he is fit following a shoulder injury sustained at the weekend, however Moyes is less certain. And he admits his move from Everton to the red half of Manchester has not been the easiest.
“The transition from Everton to United has been difficult at times as I have hard decisions to make,” he said.
“Everton are a great club and I was proud to manage them. But I can’t deny Manchester United is on another level. Let’s be honest, it would be a step up from just about any club in the world.”
