Who will be the Scot’s first big-name Old Trafford capture?
It seems like the obvious choice, seeing as the pair worked so well together at Everton for past six years.
Moyes picked him up from Wigan as a young man who could achieve great things in the game and turned him into a creative tour de force who is now set to take over from Ashley Cole as England’s first choice left back, just in time for the World Cup next year.
There’s an old myth in football that to become a great player you need to be at a top side, and while that is true in some cases Baines has proved that the status quo means very little to him as fans of most club’s would gladly see him stroll straight into their side and dispossess whoever is in front of him.
Having said that, though, now that Moyes has moved on there is a sense that his time and place at Goodison Park has run it’s course and it’s now time to join one of those aforementioned top clubs in order to finally come away with some more silverware and finally cement himself within the pantheon of true greats.
If anyone knows how much he’s worth, and what to say to convince him to join United – it’s Moyes.
