Balague: Manchester United 'set to sign' Fellaini and Baines

Are Manchester United about to swipe Everton's star duo?

Gearing up for a busy deadline day? We are here at HITC Sport, and one of the names which keeps coming back to our attention is Marouane Fellaini.

Indeed we would not be surprised to see Manchester United sign him as late as 10.59pm, with Everton playing hardball on a fee.

Interest also remains in his teammate Leighton Baines, with joint bids received for the pair by the Toffees.

Spanish journalist Guillem Balague however claims that United face late competition from two European sides for their signature.

Who could it be? PSG? Monaco? Sevilla? Lazio? We can only speculate as he does not say, but what he does reveal is that the two clubs have been told not to bother.

The reason? They are Manchester United bound...

There's likely a long way still to go in this one and a few twists and turns over the course of the day, but if United fans are keen on the pair, then this is good news.

Do you want United to sign both Fellaini and Baines?
