Leighton Baines has asked Everton to allow him to move to Manchester United according to reports in tomorrow’s papers.
The left back has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United this summer but has remained silent amidst speculation, instead concentrating on his football.
Last week United’s interest was confirmed when Everton publicly admonished a £28m joint bid for Baines and team mate Marouane Fellaini, claiming that it was ‘derisory’.
According to The Independent, Baines made it clear earlier in the summer that he would like to join United and with the transfer window closing has continued to make it clear that he would like his club to reach an agreement with the champions.
Everton have thus far ignores Baines’ plea but with United set to make what will be a fourth bid for the 28 year old, may now finally play ball and negotiate.
