Everton boss Roberto Martinez is growing inpatient with Manchester United over their repeated interest in a number of his players, Football Express News understands.

United have been linked heavily to a number of Everton players in recent seasons and did manage to sign Marouane Fellaini two summers back when David Moyes left his managerial role at Goodison Park for Old Trafford.

Whilst, Moyes has since left the Manchester club, interest in the a number of Toffees’ players has not subsided with the likes of Leighton Baines, Seamus Coleman and James McCarthy all linked.

United boss Louis van Gaal is keen to explore the possibility of signing the latter as he looks to improve his midfield options, whilst Coleman is a back-up plan for a number of right-back targets available to the Dutch boss.

Roberto Martinez is not best pleased though and is said to be growing inpatient with the United’s constant interest, distracting his players from thinking about a potential Europa League win, which would see them qualify for the Champions League.

The Spaniard is keen to keep hold of his best players and having worked with McCarthy at Wigan Athletic, remains sure he will remain on Merseyside.
