Everton ready to cash in on Jarrad Branthwaite this summer

Everton will reportedly listen to offers for Jarrad Branthwaite in the summer transfer window, thus boosting Manchester United’s prospects.

According to a report by The Sun, Jarrad Branthwaite is the subject of interest from Manchester United. The Red Devils now have a shot in their arm, with Everton ready to part ways with him in the summer transfer window ahead of a fire sale. However, the Toffees do not want to sell any player in cut-price deals.

The rise and rise of Jarrad Branthwaite this season

Jarrad Branthwaite has seen his stock soar since returning from a loan spell at PSV Eindhoven last summer. The 21-year-old was a mainstay at the back for Everton this past summer and played his part in the Merseyside club having one of the best defensive records in the Premier League in the 2023/24 season.

The Englishman amassed over 3,500 minutes of game time across 41 appearances in all competitions, chipping in with three goals. Meanwhile, Branthwaite is travelling to Germany with the English national squad for UEFA Euro 2024 and will hope to make his international debut this month.

Meanwhile, the youngster’s progress at Everton this season has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs. A move across the Premier League might be on the cards, with Manchester United keen on signing him, although other English bigwigs have also shown interest in him.

Manchester United interested in Branthwaite

Manchester United’s interest in Jarrad Branthwaite is understandable. The Red Devils have been scouring the market for a centre-back since Raphael Varane announced his impending departure as a free agent. In addition, Jonny Evans faces an uncertain future at Old Trafford heading into the summer transfer window.

Branthwaite is thus a viable target for Manchester United, with a bid in the works. The Red Devils now have a shot in their arm, with Everton ready to listen to offers for the 21-year-old Englishman in the summer transfer window as they plan a fire sale amid the financial issues.

The Toffees are in a spot of bother due to the implications of the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules. So, a summer move away from Goodison Park is on the cards for Branthwaite. And Manchester United will be optimistic about landing the English defender.
