Manchester United face transfer dilemma with Jarrad Branthwaite plan set to be tested

Manchester United are interested in Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite as they look to fill the hole left by Raphael Varane, but it seems striking an agreement with the club won’t be straightforward.

MEN Sport understands that United are looking to sign two new centre-backs this summer, having already submitted an opening bid of £35million for Branthwaite. United’s first offer was rejected with the Toffees valuing him at between £70m-£80m.

And the club’s next move is likely to offer an early test of Ineos’ new transfer policy at Old Trafford. Under the co-ownership of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, it has been promised that a new approach will be taken to signing players.
