Everton youngster Ross Barkley is the latest player being linked with a move to Manchester United to follow David Moyes, according to the Daily Star.

The 19-year-old midfielder is highly rated at Goodison Park, despite limited first team appearances so far in his career, and Moyes believes he could grow into a fine player at Old Trafford.

This is the fourth Everton player who is said to be being eyed up by the departing Toffees boss, as he is set to take over from the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United next season.

Everton could also lose key players Leighton Baines, Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jagielka in a mass summer exodus, though they will be determined to hold on to as many of their players as possible after losing their talented long-serving manager to the Red Devils.

Competition for places will be fierce at Old Trafford, but Barkley may be tempted by a move to a big team that has a good track record of giving opportunities to young players.

And there could be places available in United’s midfield next season, with the likes of Nani and Ashley Young being tipped to leave the club during the summer.
