Apparently, Leighton Baines is close to moving to Old Trafford. Manchester Evening News understands that the Fellaini-Baines deal may be done sooner rather than later.
Manchester United want to have the left-back in the squad and will make a final offer for the Everton duo.

In a recent turn of events, The Independent reports that Leighton Baines asked Everton to negotiate his transfer to Manchester United during the preseason. However, the Toffees have rejected three bids from the Red Devils.
The left-back has not changed his mind and is willing to leave as soon as possible.

Last week, Everton rejected Manchester United’s bid for Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines. The Toffees found the offer insulting, according to ESPN.
Now that David Moyes knows how tough it will be to have both his former stars, Leighton Baines may be out of the equation.
Manchester United will offer £35 million for both of them, but if the transaction does not go through then they will only pursue Fellaini, Mirror Football believes.
