Man Utd agree personal terms with Bramthwaite transfer talks opened with Everton

Manchester United have reportedly agreed personal terms with Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite.

The Red Devils are in the market for a new centre-back to fill the void left by the departing Raphael Varane.

According to Times Sport, Man United have made a ‘significant step forward’ by agreeing personal terms with the player’s representatives.

Branthwaite would earn between £150,000 and £160,000 a week if he signs for United.

Several other clubs are interested in securing his services. However, the Red Devils seem to be ahead in the transfer race.

Transfer fee could be a stumbling block for Man United

The Toffees are standing firm on their hefty asking price of £70 million for Branthwaite. The 21-year-old is one of the most valuable players in their squad.

Everton’s precarious financial situation may force them to cash in to stay within the Premier League’s Profitability and Sustainability Regulations (PSR) limits.

United could try to convince Everton to lower their demands. They want to bolster multiple positions this summer and splashing £70m on just one player is not a sensible decision.

Erik ten Hag has a reputation for developing young players into world-beaters. Branthwaite could benefit from working under the Dutchman.

The youngster currently earns £35,000 per week and could increase his salary five-fold by securing a move to Old Trafford.

The starlet would be a welcome addition to the squad, but only if United can complete a deal at a lower transfer fee.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe is determined to stop United’s tradition of overpaying in the transfer market.

He should attempt to sign the centre-back in a deal worth around £50-60m.
