Manchester United have reached an agreement on personal terms with Jarrad Branthwaite and are now poised to make a formal bid for the Everton youngster this summer. Branthwaite has emerged as United’s primary defensive transfer target, especially with Everton facing financial difficulties that may force them to sell their prized asset.

Everton reportedly values Branthwaite at £70 million (€83 million), and United will begin fee negotiations after securing a contract with the 21-year-old worth around £150,000 to £160,000 per week, according to The Times.

United’s transfer activities have intensified following the confirmation that Erik ten Hag will continue as manager next season, based on an end-of-season review. The club has been particularly impressed with Branthwaite, who, standing at 6 feet 5 inches, was a key figure in Everton’s defense, which allowed the fourth-fewest goals last season. Nonetheless, the transfer is expected to be complex and could extend deep into the summer, according to FOOTBALLWAVE.

In addition to Branthwaite, United are looking to bolster their defense with another center-back, following Raphael Varane’s departure on a free transfer and the uncertain future of Harry Maguire. Jonny Evans is also out of contract. United and Liverpool have both shown interest in Lille’s Leny Yoro, though Real Madrid is considered the frontrunner for the 18-year-old.

Jean-Clair Todibo and Matthijs de Ligt are also on United’s radar as right-footed center-back options, with Branthwaite seen as the ideal candidate to compete with Lisandro Martinez for the left-center back position.
