In news that will surprise no one The Sun says that David Moyes is going to kick off his tenure as Manchester United boss (that still sounds odd when I write it) by snapping up the best two players from his old club.

Moyes is ready to move for Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini and will give his erstwhile employers around £40 million for the pair.

Baines has apparently been a United target for a while though the club have never formally bid for the 28 year old. Meanwhile Moyes is likely to face opposition from possibly Chelsea and Man City for the Belgian midfielder Fellaini. The player reputedly has a £24 million release clause in his contract.

The big question then is whether Patrice Evra will hang around or return to his native France to finish his career.
