Man Utd will make another offer for Everton defender after having their first bid rejected

Man Utd will make another offer for Everton defender after having their first bid rejected

Manchester United are reportedly preparing a second offer for Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite.

The Red Devils need defensive reinforcements as Raphael Varane will leave the club when his contract expires.

United have earmarked Branthwaite as an ideal option but a deal is far from easy.

They recently offered £35 million plus £8m in add-ons for the talented defender, but Everton turned down the bid, insisting they want £70m.

The Daily Mail now claim Manchester United are preparing a second offer.

The 21-year-old has emerged as one of the top defensive talents in England. He started 35 matches in the Premier League last term, netting three goals.

The centre-back also averaged 1.9 tackles, 1.4 interceptions and 4.5 clearances per game in the English top-flight

He played a pivotal role in helping the Toffees retain their top-flight status, but they could be forced to sell him to comply with the league’s Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

Everton’s asking price of £70m is unreasonable, and United are unlikely to meet the valuation.
