Five players being linked to Old Trafford following news of David Moyes’ appointment as the club’s new manager.
5. Leighton Baines (Everton)
Moyes has immediately been linked with a raid on current club Everton, and according to the Daily Mirror, is supposedly keen on taking left-back Leighton Baines to Old Trafford with him when he leaves at the end of the season. The England international has had a great season at Goodison Park and would be an improvement at left-back on the inconsistent Patrice Evra.
The former Wigan man has been a crucial attacking element for the Toffees, at times leading the way in Europe this season with key passes, crosses and chances created for his team-mates. He could arguably improve his defensive game, but would probably have fewer attacks to deal with as a United player, and more emphasis on going forward with the rest of the team. He could also add his name to a famous list of great free-kick takers for the Red Evils.
