Everton are demanding £25 million EACH for Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.
The Mirror says chairman Bill Kenwright continues to play hardball with former Toffees boss and new United manager David Moyes, rejecting the champions' increased joint offer of £38m.
Kenwright wants £25m for each player.
Everton are desperate to hang on to England left-back Baines, even though he wants to join the Old Trafford giants, and know their stance will price him out of Moyes’ reach.
The Toffees are more willing to negotiate over Fellaini though and will consider a bid which, with add-ons, is close to their £25m valuation.
