David Moyes hopes to take Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini with him to Manchester United when he leaves Everton at the end of the season, the
Moyes has been confirmed as the next United manager, officially taking the post on July 1, after Sir Alex Ferguson announced he would retire after the final game of the campaign. Ferguson has spent 26 years at Old Trafford, winning 13 league titles and two FA Cups in a trophy-laden career.
United had previously been linked with the likes of Radamel Falcao and Robert Lewandowski but the Express believes Moyes will take the Everton pair the short distance to Manchester, paying his soon-to-be-former club in the region of £40m for the double deal.
Fellaini, Everton’s record signing, is thought to have a release clause of £24m in his contract, while Baines is valued in the region of £15m. The Belgium midfielder moved to Goodison Park from Standard Liege in 2008, while Baines left Wigan Athletic for the Toffees in 2007. They are respectively Everton’s leading and third-highest goal scorers this season.
