David Moyes have just one week remaining to decide whether, or not, he wants to reunite with Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini – who impressed throughout last season at Goodison Park according to The Sun.
The Belgian giants has a reported buyout clause of £22million, that is only valid until the 31st July. Once this date has passed, it is likely the Toffees will demand well over £30million for the midfielder.
Moyes is currently pursuing the chase for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, after not yet hearing an official answer from their second bid. It is believed the second bid is around £31million, whilst a third bid of £35million is now being considered as a take it or leave it offer – only if their second is rejected.
United will then look to try sign another player from Moyes’ past. Everton’s left back Leighton Baines is an ideal replacement for veteran defender Patrice Evra in Moyes’ eyes. It is widely reported that the Red Devils have already had a £12million bid rejected, but another improved bid is not unlikely.
Despite all this talk of transfers in and around Old Trafford, young defender Phil Jones has claimed there is no panic – even if Manchester City do continue to spend they way they have begun [spending over £100million already this summer].
“I don’t think the lads are too bothered who the players are that other teams are signings,” Jones claimed.
“It’s irrelevant. We’re just concentrating on ourselves and what we’re about and we know what to do.”
