Manchester United have offered £28million for the double signing of Everton’s Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines, but the bid has been swiftly rejected by the Merseyside club.

The official club statement from Everton FC reads:

“Everton can confirm that it has received bids from Manchester United for two players. Those bids were immediately rejected out of hand as derisory and insulting.

“The Club did not make public these details as it was vital Roberto Martinez’s preparations for the opening game of the Premier League season were not disrupted in anyway.”

The ball is now in Manchester United’s court to decide whether they want to lodge a second bid. Meanwhile, for Everton supporters, the concern is that they could be losing not one, but two of their better footballers if a new, improved bid is offered.
