Manchester United to offer £16m for Baines but Everton want over £20m

    MANCHESTER UNITED are set to make an improved £16m bid for Leighton Baines in the hope of luring him to Old Trafford.

    Everton last week rejected a £12m offer for the England defender, with chairman Bill Kenwright keen to keep him at Goodison.

    Kenwright is fuming that former boss David Moyes has tried to raid his old club for one of their prize assets.

    He has offered Baines a £70,000-aweek deal and hopes he won’t walk out on the Toffees for United.

    But Moyes wants his man and will test Everton’s resolve with a bigger offer.

    Kenwright knows he could have no choice but to sell Baines and is holding out for closer to £20m.

    But United are hoping their second bid will result in a compromise being reached between the two clubs.
