The Red Devils are told it will cost a hefty sum to land Baines.
Everton are holding firm over the future of Leighton Baines and have told Manchester United it will cost £25m to secure a transfer for the left-back, according to Goal.
The Red Devils have been keen on the England international for some time and had two bids for Baines rejected in the summer.
Offers of £12m and £15m were slammed by the Toffees as derisory and disrespectful and relations between the two clubs were affected as a result.
However, United have not given up hope on bringing in the 29-year-old as a long-term replacement for Patrice Evra – who is expected to leave Old Trafford when the Frenchman’s contract expires next summer.
Baines is also keen on a move to the Premier League champions and a reunion with manager David Moyes, who originally brought the full-back to Goodison Park from Wigan Athletic back in 2007.
Yet when negotiations over a double deal for the defender and Marouane Fellaini hit trouble over the summer, the Englishman refused to put in a transfer request despite wanting to leave.
It’s this professionalism that makes Baines such an appealing addition to the United squad and many believe it’s about time the talented star was playing Champions League football.
Moyes and Red Devils chief executive Ed Woodward are unlikely to want to pay so much money for a player that is approaching their 30th birthday though.
