Manchester United link to Fellaini & Baines 'not a concern'

Roberto Martinez remains unconcerned about the futures of Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines, despite speculation the Everton duo are transfer targets for Manchester United.

David Moyes' move from Goodison Park to Old Trafford has led to suggestions the Premier League champions will look to recruit Fellaini and Baines, with a bid already reported to have been made for the latter.

Manchester United, it is claimed, have seen an offer of £12 million for Baines rejected by Everton, while Moyes may formalise his interest in Fellaini as the club desperately strive to reinforce their midfield.

Cesc Fabregas is the primary target for Manchester United, but they will reportedly focus their attention on the acquisition of Fellaini should their attempts to sign the Barcelona star prove to be fruitless.

Martinez, however, is not allowing his mind to be occupied by claims a Manchester United move for his star due is imminent, and has praised the Toffees pair for their professionalism during pre-season so far.

"That's not a concern," Martinez told reporters. "I know that's what the media wants to know and those are the questions in the press. 

"What I'm really, really happy [about] is that Marouane Fellaini hasn't missed a training session. 

"Leighton Baines is an impressive, impressive footballer that has been an ambassador for Everton. I'm looking forward to working with every player in this squad."
