Everton could demand £60 million to sell Amadou Onana

Everton will not accept anything less than £60 million for highly-rated Amadou Onana, despite facing the risk of relegation and further Premier League punishment for FFP breaches.

TEAMtalk reckons Everton remain in a strong position to hold onto key stars amid worrying new claims of an impending financial crisis and could demand at least £60 million for prized midfielder Amadou Onana in the wake of Manchester United’s growing interest.

The troubled Merseysiders have been hit by a 10-point reduction after breaching the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules earlier this week to plunge the club deep into the relegation mire, though that may not be the end of their problems.

Reports have circulated that Everton could be sued for approximately £300 million by three clubs: Leicester City, Burnley, and Leeds United. The three sides were relegated to the Championship in a closely-contested relegation scrap last season. But Everton being hit with a point deduction would have seen them face the drop.

If the clubs are successful in suing Everton, it is expected to deal Sean Dyche’s side a hammer blow. So, offloading players would be one of the ways that they could raise funds, which could be music to the ears of several clubs, who have been keeping a keen eye on the Blues’ star assets.

Manchester United are among the clubs looking to capitalise on Everton’s recent issues by pursuing coveted defender Branthwaite and star midfielder Amadou Onana as they look to inject a fresh spark into Erik ten Hag’s injury-ridden squad following an underwhelming start to the campaign.

The Red Devils are looking to bolster their midfield options in 2024 amid claims that Casemiro is a target for Saudi Arabian club. In addition, the futures of Sofyan Amrabat and Scott McTominay remain up in the air. As a result, they have prepared a list of possible options, with Onana very much among them.

However, the latest update from TEAMtalk could dampen Manchester United’s excitement, claiming the Toffees’ are “adamant” that no move away will be given the green light unless the offered fee matches with the perceived value of the talent they possess.

Everton rate Onana in the £60 million bracket after spending heavily on him last summer. Regardless of Everton’s high valuation, Manchester United are very keen on the player and are strongly considering a possible move for him in the upcoming January transfer window.
