Manchester United will make an improved bid for Leighton Baines if the left-back tells Everton he wants to leave Goodison Park, according to Sportsmail.

The Red Devils made a £12m for the England international earlier this summer, which was rejected by the Toffees, but they have not given up hope of landing the 28-year-old with an improved second bid.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez said earlier this week that he does not expect United to go back for Baines, but that would change if the Premier League champions get their way and the full-back submits a written transfer request.

Baines, after several superb seasons under David Moyes with the Merseyside outfit, is regarded as the ideal replacement for Patrice Evra, who at 32 is expected to become a less reliable option in the coming months and years.

It's believed that Everton would consider a bid of around £18m - but any offer less than that is likely to be rejected.
