Man Utd prepare to close signing of £100million star this month

Posted by

According to rumours, Manchester United is getting ready to finalise the signing of Jarrad Branthwaite before the transfer deadline expires on Thursday in an effort to bolster their defence this month.

The Everton player is reportedly a sought man in the market, and the Toffees are trying to work out a new deal with him, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Reputable Italian publication reports that Real Madrid and Chelsea are interested in signing the 21-year-old centre back.

However, Man Utd is “trying to close” the signing before the winter transfer window closes.

According to the Rome-based news outlet, the total deal value, including cash and add-ons, is 40 million euros.

The aforementioned amount is far too low for Branthwaite, who has established himself as a reliable defender in the Premier League for Everton, who hold him in the highest regard.

In order to deter potential suitors like Manchester United and Tottenham, the Merseysiders have placed an enormous £100 million price tag on their prized asset, according to an exclusive story that iNews covered last month.

The former PSV Eindhoven centre defender has played in 18 Premier League games so far this season, contributing to the team’s six clean sheet total.

Branthwaite is anticipated to start today at Craven Cottage in the league match against Fulham.

Varane, Maguire, Evans, and Lindelof are among the players at Old Trafford who are well past their prime, thus Ten Hag needs a top-notch centre back who can help the team win it all.

Do you think Man Utd should make an offer this month to sign Branthwaite, who is valued at £100 million, from Goodison Park?
