Bayern Munich will offer £9million for England full-back Leighton Baines in their efforts to prise him from Everton in January.
Sportsmail exclusively revealed the German champions’ interest in Baines in October and, despite discouragement from Everton, they have grown more determined in their pursuit.

David Moyes will have a fight on his hands to keep Leighton Baines from being tempted by a move to the German giants Bayern Munich. Despite the fact that Louis Van Gaal’s side are some way back from runaway Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund, the Allianz Arena side still has vast pulling power and the chance for Baines to try his hand at Champions League football will lead him to definitely consider such a move.
Bayern Munich currently sit in fifth spot in the table some 14 points behind Dortmund but the England international full back would surely still be tempted by a move to last season’s Champions League finalists.
It may take a bigger bid than the one quoted by this source to push Everton into considering selling the attack minded left back who also is also a set piece specialist and if the Toffees fail to make up any ground over the Xmas period then the 26 year old would surely push for a Goodison Park exit.
