The Toffees are holding firm over Baines and Fellaini.
Manchester United’s improved second double bid for Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini of £36m has been rejected by Everton once again, reports the Guardian.
The Red Devils initial offer for the pair was £28m and was instantly dismissed by the Merseyside club as ‘derisory and insulting.’
However, despite adding £8m to that first bid the Toffees are still not budging and United will be forced to either give up or increase once more, as deadline day quickly approaches.
New manager at Old Trafford David Moyes was in charge at Goodison Park for 11 years and although the first bid was considered disrespectful, the Scot still has a good relationship with former chairman Bill Kenwright.
Kenwright and new boss Roberto Martinez are obviously keen to hold onto arguably the club’s two best players, but if United bid high enough it will be impossible to refuse.
The chairman and Moyes are in discussion over the deal and an agreement is expected to be met before September 2.
Fellaini and Baines were once again both in fine form during the 2012/13 campaign and with the pair having such a good working relationship with their ex-manager, the transition to the Premier league champions should be far easier.
Martinez meanwhile is looking into bringing in either James McCarthy from Wigan Athletic – who the Spaniard used to manage – or Gareth Barry of Manchester City as a replacement in midfield for the Belgian.
The 40-year-old will want the transfers out of the club to be dealt with sooner rather than later so that there is more time to acquire new talent.
