Manchester United may offer Darron Gibson as part of a deal to sign Ross Barkley from Everton, according to Setanta Sports.

Previous reports had suggested that United were monitoring Barkley ahead of a possible deal.

However, new reports suggest that Gibson, who has been linked with Everton this summer, could be used to help United clinch a deal for the youngster.


The 17-year-old has broken through at Goodison Park this season and was recently tipped for stardom by former Arsenal defender Martin Keown.

Everton have a long history of bringing through talented youngsters, to United's benefit, after the club signed Wayne Rooney in 2004.

The club have promoted the likes of Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck from the youth ranks this season and United would look to Barkley as the next generation at Old Trafford.
