Manchester United have put Everton’s Ross Barkley at the top of their winter shopping list, according to the Manchester Evening News.

David Moyes is desperate to get Manchester United to the front of the queue to sign the starlet he managed at Everton.

Toffees boss Roberto Martinez said last week the club would not consider selling Barkley, even if the club received an offer that surpassed the world record £86million fee Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale in the summer.

However, the Merseysiders are still bracing themselves for some big offers in January, after Barkley’s superb start to the season at Goodison Park.

United have money to spend in January, and were willing to match Real Madrid’s offer for Bale in the summer.

The Welshman had his heart set on a move to the Spanish capital, but United do not want to miss out on another star of British football.

They are confident a bid of £50million will be enough to get Everton negotiating, but know a deal will not be easy to agree after their clumsy attempts to sign Leighton Baines and Maraoune Fellaini in the summer.

Everton described the original offer of £28million for the pair as ‘derisory and insulting’, and United were forced to sign Fellaini for £27.5million on deadline day.

Whilst United know it is unlikely Everton will be willing to do business in January, Moyes is under pressure to deliver a big name signing after missing out on a host of top targets in the summer.
