One of the main challenges for new Everton manager Roberto Martinez is to retain star players like Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini, who have been linked with a move away from the club in recent months. Manchester United came in with an official offer for Baines a few months ago, but they have since not increased their offer.

The initial bid of around £ 12 million was instantly rejected by Everton. It has been reported that the Merseyside club will be looking at selling the 28-year-old defender if United come in with an offer of around £ 18 million, which is yet to materialise.



Despite being a target of Manchester United, defender Leighton Baines has said that he is very much looking forward to working with the Everton manager Roberto Martinez.

The Spaniard was appointed as the replacement for David Moyes, who left for United at the end of last season. Martinez comes on the back of the relegation with Wigan, but he also helped the club lift the FA Cup last season. Even though Moyes was at Everton for more than a decade, he failed to win any major trophy with the club.
