David Moyes has revealed that the reason it took so long to get the Marouane Fellaini deal finalised was because the club were still trying to sign Leighton Baines right until the last minute.
“We wanted to try and get Leighton Baines,” Moyes explained. “We didn’t want to give up on Leighton Baines right up until the last minute. Our aim was to try and keep the two deals together and it was only at the last minute that we decided to split the two deals. We felt that was the best way to do it.”
