Everton star Leighton Baines has pleaded with the club to agree transfer with Manchester United to realise his dream move to Old Trafford, reports the Independent.

The 28-year-old is to desperate to reunite with former Everton boss David Moyes, who signed him from Wigan in 2007.

Everton have already rejected three bids from Manchester United, including two bids of £9 million, £12 million and the latest double-deal bid of £35 million which included midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

The Premier League champions are reportedly close to complete the £20 million swoop for Baines' team-mate Fellaini, who is expected to become a Manchester United player before the transfer window shuts on September 2.

It is also reported that England international Baines also desires a move to Old Trafford as he eyes a spot in the Champions League for the first time in his career.

The 28-year-old held talks with Merseyside club's boss Roberto Martinez and chairman Bill Kenwright to discuss his dream to reunion with Moyes and has pleaded the club to agree a transfer fee with the Red Devils.

A move to United this summer will benefit the full back, who is fighting for his place in World Cup next year with Chelsea's Ashley Cole being a first choice left back for Three Lions' manager Roy Hodgson.
