Man United are looking to close the signing of £100million Premier League star this month
According to sources, Manchester United are getting ready to finalise the acquisition of Jarrad Branthwaite before the transfer deadline expires on Thursday in an effort to bolster their defense this month.
The Everton player is reportedly a wanted man on 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 Everton defender.
However, Man Utd are “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 above mentioned amount is far too low for Branthwaite, who has established himself as a reliable defender in the Premier League for Everton and the Merseyside club hold him in the highest regard.
In order to deter potential bidders like Manchester United and Tottenham, the Merseysiders have placed an enormous £100 million price tag on their prized asset, according to an exclusive report that iNews published last month.
The former PSV Eindhoven centre half has played in 18 Premier League games so far this season, contributing to the team’s six clean sheets.
Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Jonny Evans and Victor Lindelof are among the players at Old Trafford who are far beyond their prime, thus Ten Hag needs a top-notch central defender who can help the team challenge for trophies in the future.
This signing could be the perfect start of the INEOS era at Old Trafford.
