London, Aug 30: Premier League club Everton have rejected Manchester United’s bid of 36 million pounds for Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini.
According to The Guardian, United had failed with a 28 million pound joint offer for the Belgium midfielder and England left back a fortnight ago, with Everton labeling the deal as ‘derisory and insulting’.
The Premier League champions have come back with an improved offer but again found Everton unwilling to sell, although discussions are likely to continue between Moyes and the Goodison Park chairman, Bill Kenwright, before Monday’s transfer deadline, the report said.
Moyes’s successor as Everton manager, Roberto Martinez, expressed he did not know of a renewed United bid for his players on Thursday but admitted that Kenwright will have the final say on transfers at the club, the report added. (ANI)
