Transfer News: Spurs Table £6m Bid | United Boss Moyes Sanctions £14m Offer

Leighton-Baines

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Tottenham are closing in on the signing of winger Chadli while Manchester United are lining-up an improved offer for Leighton Baines.

Spurs table £6m Chadli bid

First up and the Daily Mail are one of several media outlets who’re reporting that Tottenham are closing in on the signing of Nacer Chadli from FC Twente after tabling a £6m bid.

The Belgian winger has been hugely impressive for Twente since joining the club back in 2010 and it appears he’s caught the eye of Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas with the Mail claiming the north Londoners have submitted an opening £6m offer.

The report suggests the Dutch outfit are holding out for a fee nearer £7.75m but the two clubs are expected to agree a deal somewhere between the two figures and the player is expected to sign a five-year deal.

The 23-year-old is a versatile attacker who can play on either flank and holds duel citizenship with both Morocco and Belgium – although he elected to represent Belgium at senior international level and should Chadli complete his move to Spurs, he’ll join compatriots Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele at White Hart Lane.

Moyes sanctions £14m offer

Next up and the Mirror are claiming that Manchester United boss David Moyes has sanctioned a new and improved £14m offer for Everton left-back Leighton Baines.

The champions saw their opening bid of £12m rejected by the Toffees last month with reports suggesting it would take a fee nearer £18m to persuade the club into selling. However, while United are not prepared to meet that sum, the Mirror suggest Moyes is prepared to up their bid to £14m with the former Everton boss understood to be desperate to bring Baines with him to Old Trafford.

The 28-year-old has been at Goodison Park for six years but the newspaper claims he’s now keen on ending his stay on Merseyside in favour of linking up with his old boss at United.

    I dont think its a good idea 2 sign baines 4 £14m, while we can even bring in coentrao 4rm madird, and we still evra, buttner and fabio. All we need are midfielder’s like strootman, gaitan, modric, or matic. Dont 4get garay .

    Mirror just playing along with United trying to unsettle the player. United know the asking price and 14m is nowhere near it! Jog on Moyes…

    Why should he make such bid again when he know that left back is not the main thing on board

    14 million for one of the best left backs in the world who also created more goal scoring opportunities than any other player on the top leagues across Europe o yes he can also take a wicked free kick add at least another 6to10 million and they might be a bit closer the mark o yes and finally he also played more prem football than any other player last season so no worries with injury or fitness jog on moyse what part off Martinez saying he’s not for sale do you not u understand rant over soz

    Y would moyees be planning on signing on a left back player…… Wen we don’t need any! D main problem is d midfield…. Or does he fink he is still @ Everton? I guess moyees shud wake up and do d right thing…. Rather than beating arnd d bush…. Moyees dis is English champion nt a struggling team!

    How come all you idiots on here can’t type the English language properly?
    It’s all messed up, stupid text message language.
    Or is it just Manchester United fans who type like that? Didn’t go to school I see.

    Ps if you want Baines he’ll be £20m please, otherwise do one Moyes you Ginger Ninja!

  25. Joan

    July 11, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Oh wait there Man U ain’t got no English support so this is your best efforts being foreigners. Sorry!

    Just a couple of things:

    1. Has someone made about 20 different accounts and commented on each one? Seriously, learn to spell.

    2. Man United don’t need a left back and so should leave Baines at Everton, they’ve already taken their manager, I’m sure Bill Kenwright and the Everton fans don’t want them to take their best player as well.

    3. Tottenham should be trying to sign strikers but so far the only reported ‘offers’ have been for midfield/ wide players. I don’t think they tried hard enough to get David Villa considering he went to Athletico for only £4.4 million.

    4. Give it a few years and Tottenham will probably have signed a full Belgian first 11 at this rate…
