Many sources today are suggesting that the tug-of-war between Manchester United and Liverpool for Gabriel Heinze could affect Wigan left-back Leighton Baines.

The Wigan left-back has already refused a £6 million move to newly promoted Sunderland, as he reportedly wishes to further his career by moving to one of the top 4 teams, with both Liverpool and United reportedly keen on the England-U21 international.

Numerous Sunday newspapers, such as the Daily Star Sunday and the Sunday Express claim that the futures of Utd’s Argentine full-back, Gabriel Heinze and Baines are connected, with them suggesting that if Heinze was to leave (for Liverpool or abroad), then Utd would reportedly step up their bid to sign Baines.

However, with no official confirmation as yet it is still just a rumour, and with Heinze’s latest comments, it is looking as if staying is becoming more of a possibilty with the Argentine reportedly set to hold crunch talks with utd after his holiday following his Copa America outing.

But what do you think? Is Baines good enough? Should we try to keep Heinze? Is Evra and Silvestre enough cover at left-back? Or should we go after another target?

Have YOUR say.
