Man united backed to complete the signing of £80m Everton star who has ‘Better Value for Money’ Than £60m Nice defender ahead of summer transfer

Manchester United are reportedly in the market for Jarrad Branthwaite and Jean-Clair Todibo, but the former could be better value for money.

United could prioritise a defender due to the uncertain futures of Jonny Evans and Raphael Varane.

Everton’s Branthwaite may offer better value for money than Todibo.
Manchester United are reportedly interested in both Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo and Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite ahead of the summer transfer window, and journalist Ben Jacobs has explained to GIVEMESPORT why the latter will be better value for money.

Bringing in an additional centre-back could be a priority for the Red Devils when the market opens for business due to the uncertain futures of some of their current crop of defenders.

It’s been a problem position for Erik ten Hag this season, with veteran defender Jonny Evans featuring heavily throughout the campaign due to injuries for the likes of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez.

Branthwaite and Todibo have both been linked with moves to Old Trafford, and United will have a decision to make in the summer transfer window as to whether to make a serious play for either centre-back.

The Red Devils won’t want to waste their whole budget on one signing, with ten Hag need multiple areas of his squad reinforced.

Branthwaite and Todibo Linked With United Moves

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, speaking on the Here We Go podcast, recently revealed that United were yet to offer Varane a new contract. As a result, his future is up in the air at the moment, and he’s on course to head through the exit door in the summer with his deal expiring.

Evans is also set to depart if the Red Devils don’t offer fresh terms, so ten Hag could be left short of options in the middle of defence.

Sources have recently revealed to GIVEMESPORT that Everton youngster Branthwaite has emerged as a standout target for United this summer.

There is confidence that the England youth international will seek a fresh challenge at the end of the campaign, regardless of whether the Toffees stay in the Premier League.

The Manchester outfit have a long-standing interest in the former Carlisle man.

Respected reporter Romano has also told GIVEMESPORT that Nice defender Todibo is a player admired by United. The French outfit are also owned by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who recently acquired a 25% stake at Old Trafford.

The Italian journalist expects United to be in the mix for Todibo during the summer transfer window, while they also have Leny Yoro and Antonio Silva on their list.
