Man Utd apologise to Everton over Moyes approach

Manchester United have made a written apology to Everton over their conduct in hiring David Moyes to replace Sir Alex Ferguson, the Daily Mirror has reported.


David Moyes


The Everton hierarchy was said to be angry over United’s heavy-handed manner at the end of last season and had considered making a formal complaint to the Premier League. Moyes has admitted he was first approached by United months before the end of the season, and was confirmed as Ferguson’s successor with still a number of games to be played.


Everton were unimpressed by United’s behaviour and have vowed not to sell Leighton Baines to the champions - with United’s only hope of signing the left-back resting on the size of the bid. Moyes first offered £12m for Baines and hoped to return with a slightly improved offer once that was rejected; however Everton have made it clear it would take a significantly higher amount - one they could not afford to turn down - before they would let Baines follow Moyes to Old Trafford.


Moyes maintains an interest in Marouane Fellaini and could attempt to trigger the Belgian’s release clause, which is active for a few more weeks. If Moyes is ultimately frustrated in his attempts to sign Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, then the Mirror believes it is to Fellaini that Moyes will turn.


Fellaini, Everton’s record signing, was brought to Goodison Park from Standard Liege in 2008, with Baines arriving a year earlier from Wigan Athletic. As well as Moyes, United also appointed former Everton captain Phil Neville, assistant manager Steve Round and coaches Jimmy Lumsden and Chris Woods.
