Manchester United are not about to give up on signing Everton defender Leighton Baines and will go back with a second bid of £16million.

According to the Daily Star, new Old Trafford manager David Moyes is keen to recruit his former charge and is not put off by the Toffess knocking back a £12million from last week.

Moyes has only just taken over at Manchester United after his contract with Everton came to an end last month

The report claims Goodison Park chairman Bill Kenwright is not best pleased that Moyes is attempting to return to his old club and trying to sign his former players.

However, it also says Kenwright accepts he may not be able to hold onto the England international, though he will hold out for something closer to £20million.

Were Manchester United to sign Baines, it would raise serious doubts about Patrice Evra’s future at Old Trafford.

Reports at the weekend claimed he was not pleased with the prospect of no longer being first choice left-back and would be open to a move to old club AS Monaco.
