Toffees ‘Angrily’ Reject Manchester United’s £28m Double Bid

Everton have angrily rejected a £28m double bid from Manchester United for star duo Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines, according to the Liverpool Echo.

With the summer transfer window in full swing, 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, Everton reject a £28m double bid from Manchester United.

Leighton-Baines

Everton have angrily rejected a £28m double bid from Manchester United for star duo Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The newspaper claims that the champions infuriated the Merseysiders after valuing Fellaini at just £16m two weeks after his £23.5m buy-out clause expired, while they once again tried their luck with a £12m bid for left-back Baines.

The £28m double deal was swiftly rejected by the Toffees but the derisory nature of the offer has been seen as a way of unsettling the two players.

The bid will be particularly scathing given it came from former boss David Moyes, who should know better than anyone how much Fellaini and Baines are valued at Goodison Park, and the Echo suggest it’s left a bad feeling between the two clubs.

Fellaini joined Everton from Standard Liege in 2008 for a fee which eventually rose to £17.5m with add ons so United’s reported £16m bid actually suggests that the Belgian’s value has decreased over the last five years, despite the 25-year-old establishing himself as an important first team player not only with his club but also with the Belgian national team and he’s scored 32 goals in 174 appearances so far for the Toffees.

United already had a £12m bid for Baines rejected earlier in the summer so I’m not sure why they thought it would be accepted this time around, but one things for sure, the Old Trafford club are going to have to dig a little deeper if they want to sign the duo this summer.

    What a new low for both Moyes and Manchester United FC. £28m for both Fellaini & Baines – what is Moyes and Woodward smoking up their. If we were interested to sign Fellaini then we should have payed his £23m buyout clause much earlier in the summer. As for Baines – I think he should have been Moyes’s first signing before the team went on their summer tour. Yes United made a £12m bid for the left back, but Moyes knew pretty well that Everton would not accept anything less than £18 plus million for one of the best left backs in the Epl.

    Arsenal shud move on frm Suarez and get Landowisky (sp), Rooney, benzema (38+-mil is evaluation 4 all. Michu is not a perfect match because he too a left footed like podolski and Giroud…., the only perfect match holding midfielders for arsenal than Fellaini, Khedila and Mikel Obi (25mil+-) can do the business to all. I prefer 1 or 2 english centre back. Ashley W or Show Cross (Maximum 14mil+- can make it happen)which is with in transfer budget

    This proves United are not “serious” in their moves for these players (or any others). Supposedly they have a war-chest of $100 million and once again they are messing about in the bargain basement… two bob mentality. It’s like United “want” it to fail so they can say to their supporters… “we tried”. What a joke this is becoming.
