David Moyes made an improved £38million double bid to take Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines to Manchester United.
Moyes increased his previous package for the pair – which was condemned as “insulting and derisory” by Everton – by £8million.
The Goodison club have yet to reject this fresh move for midfielder Fellaini and England left-back Baines – and insiders have predicted they will sell Fellaini before the weekend.
Everton, who insist Baines is not for sale and deny he’s asked to go, want Man United to specify the value they are placing on Fellaini alone.
That’s because Robert Martinez, Moyes’ successor, is willing to sell him for £25m, either guaranteed or including ‘makeable’ extras.
Martinez needs to agree a Fellaini fee fast, as Tottenham and Newcastle have now contacted Wigan about James McCarthy – Everton’s top choice as a replacement for the Belgian.
