Toffees left back has been at Goodison for six years now.
New Everton manager David Moyes wants to make former player Leighton Baines his first signing after officially taking up his new role at Old Trafford later this summer, reports the Daily Mirror.
The reliable Everton defender has been at Goodison Park for six seasons now, having been brought to Merseyside from Wigan Athletic by Moyes himself for an initial fee of just £5 million in July 2007.
And in the intervening six-year period the England international has become a mainstay in the Toffees back four, featuring in 246 matches for the club, scoring 22 times in the process, including 16 strikes in 199 Premier League fixtures.
As a result, Moyes is said to want to bring the 28-year-old with him to the north west to replace the AS Monaco-bound Patrice Evra when the transfer window opens for action once again on July 1, with a deal expected to be agreed for a fee somewhere in the region of £15m.
