Dec. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Manchester United is close to signing Everton defender Leighton Baines for 15 million pounds ($24 million), seeing off interest from Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain, the Daily Mail said.

The 28-year-old will replace left back Patrice Evra, who may leave United, the newspaper said. Chelsea’s Ashley Cole, who is nearing the end of his contract with the London club, is also an option for United manager Alex Ferguson, the Mail said.

Chelsea and PSG are interested in Baines, who has played for England, and Arsenal sent a scout to watch the defender during Everton’s 2-1 victory over West Ham, the Mail said.
