Alex Ferguson London, Mar 13 (ANI): Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson has reached an agreement in principle to sign Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell for 25 million pounds.

Everton has asked United to come back in the summer as he was so vital to them for the rest of the season.

They also told United their initial 15 million pounds offer was nowhere near enough, The Sun reports.

Rodwell, 20, is one of the most sought-after Premier League youngsters and signed a new five-year Everton deal only last May.

Ferguson is so keen to sign him that he has persuaded the club’s owners, the Glazer family, to up their offer substantially at the end of the season.

United have committed another 15 million pounds to a double swoop for Aston Villa forward Ashley Young, 25, and their 21-year-old defender Ciaran Clark. (ANI)
