Sky Sports reporter shares what he’s now hearing about Man Utd signing Branthwaite

Manchester United’s hopes of signing Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite have been dashed in recent weeks amid two failed bids, with Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth providing an update to GIVEMESPORT.

The Red Devils are in the market for a central defender this summer following the departure of Raphael Varane and due to the recurring injury concerns for Harry Maguire and Lisandro Martinez. Earlier in the window, Branthwaite appeared to be the heavy favourite to join from Premier League rivals Everton this summer.

However, Bayern Munich’s Matthijs de Ligt and Lille’s Leny Yoro are also under consideration at Old Trafford, although the latter is favouring a move to Real Madrid. United’s pursuit of defensive reinforcement is ramping up, with De Ligt now the likeliest player to join.
