Sir Alex Ferguson will revive his interest in Everton defender Leighton Baines after conceding defeat in his move for Ashley Cole.

The Manchester United manager has made the acquisition of a new left-back a top priority, despite the capture of Alexander Buttner in August.

Ferguson remains keen to replace Patrice Evra – and as revealed by Sportsmail last month, joined the race to land Cole, whose contract expires at the end of the season, from Chelsea.

But it is looking increasingly likely that Cole will team-up with former boss Carlo Ancelotti at Paris St Germain ahead of next season.

And United are reviving their interest in England international Baines, a player they spent much of the summer courting.

Ferguson felt Everton’s £15million valuation of Baines was a price too high, but the Old Trafford club want to re-open negotiations with the Toffees.

David Moyes will be loathe to lose the 27-year-old, who has been one of Everton’s players of the season.

But a big enough offer could be enough to tempt the Goodison Park club into selling the impressive defender.
