Everton last week rejected a £12m offer for the England defender, with chairman Bill Kenwright keen to keep him at Goodison.

Kenwright is fuming that former boss David Moyes has tried to raid his old club for one of their prize assets.

He has offered Baines a £70,000-aweek deal and hopes he won't walk out on the Toffees for United.

But Moyes wants his man and will test Everton's resolve with a bigger offer.

Kenwright knows he could have no choice but to sell Baines and is holding out for closer to £20m.

But United are hoping their second bid will result in a compromise being reached between the two clubs.

Moyes, meanwhile, has returned to Goodison to take three members of his coaching staff with him to United.

Moyes has appointed Steve Round as his new No.2 following Mike Phelan's departure.

Chris Woods will also become goalkeeping coach and Jimmy Lumsden will replace Rene Meulensteen as first-team coach.

Moyes has backed the trio to rise to the challenge and help him continue the huge success United enjoyed under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Moyes said: "I have worked with Steve, Chris and Jimmy for a number of years and I'm delighted they have decided to join me at this great club.

"They bring great qualities in their respective fields and I know that, like me, they feel that this is a challenge to relish.

"I have great faith that we can together build upon the success this club has enjoyed over many years."
