EVERTON boss David Moyes has devised a stunning plan B if the unthinkable happens and he loses both Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines this summer.
Moyes would love to immediately invest his unwanted windfall on Manchester City and England team-mates James Milner and Adam Johnson.

This seems very far fetched. Given that Everton are notoriously cash strapped and that the sale of Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines would seemingly only be to help balance the books, how exactly would the Goodison Park side find funds to land this England international pair.
Milner and Johnson cost Man City a combined total of £33m and it would seem plausible that Roberto Mancini wouldn’t sell the pair for much less than he paid for their services and that’s a price that David Moyes simply couldn’t afford to stump up.
As well as the aspect of cost 26 year old Milner is still a player that has a part to play at Man City, last term the former Newcastle United man made 26 Premier League appearances and is the kind of adaptable talent that Mancini may not be keen on selling this summer.
Adam Johnson may be a different kettle of fish as the crafty winger is very much surplus to requirements at Man City but again the former Middlesbrough man would surely be out of the Toffees price range and there is of course the small matter of his huge wage demands that could put a spanner in the works.
