Man United open talks with Everton over Jarrad Branthwaite after striking deal on personal terms

Branthwaite

The Red Devils have now agreed personal terms with the defender and will be looking to strike a deal with the Toffees to make a move happen.

Everton value Branthwaite in excess of £70million and will hold out for that amount.

Erik ten Hag is looking for defensive reinforcements this summer and the 21-year-old has emerged as a top transfer target.

Branthwaite had hoped to be with England at Euro 2024, but narrowly missed the cut for Gareth Southgate’s final 26-man squad.

Man United believe that Branthwaite is the man to lead their back line, but will not pay over the odds with Sir Jim Ratcliffe determined not to pay inflated fees as the club done in the past.

While Real Madrid have been linked, Man United believe that they’re the only serious suitors to sign him.

Branthwaite played 41 times for Everton last term, scoring three goals to help them to preserve their Premier League status.

The Red Devils need a defender following the exit of Raphael Varane at the end of the Premier League season.

Man United held tentative talks with the agents of Tosin Adarabioyo before he completed his free transfer to Chelsea.
