Man United now Ready and confident to Agree Deal for £70m sensational premier league ‘Superstar’ with Sir Jim Ratcliffe to submit improved offer

Manchester United have identified Jarrad Branthwaite as a priority target, but a deal could be tricky.

The reds are Careful about overpaying for Branthwaite and is exploring various options, including potential add-ons and clauses to bridge the valuation gap.

Manchester United are seeking to advance negotiations with Everton this week to determine just how likely it is they can sign Jarrad Branthwaite.

The 21-year-old defender is being viewed as the priority target for United right now as the club aim to find early solutions to securing the back line ahead of next season.

The defence was a problematic area for Erik Ten Hag last season and the boss, who has now been told he will be remaining in charge for next term, has had assurances that at least one new centre-back will be signed.

Branthwaite has been identified as a key player to fit their vision for the future and now United’s recruitment team must work on a way to satisfy Everton’s financial expectations on a deal.

The understanding of GMS sources is that a significant issue will become how a transfer agreement is structured, and how far United are willing to take this deal in terms of potential add-ons.

We have consistently reported that £45-50million is where United intend to max out on this transaction but currently the obvious barrier to a deal is the fact Everton value him at around £70million.

Last week it was reported that United have initially opened talks at £35million, yet that figure is merely seen as an entry point on the deal.

Well-informed insiders say United would not be actively pursuing this deal if they did not think they had scope to close the difference in values further down the line.

It is expected that it will be suggested in upcoming talks that clauses or add-ons are inserted that could help satisfy Everton in eventually getting towards their £70m figure.

If the Toffees want £70million up front then it is very unlikely this can move forwards. Yet to take the majority of the transfer fee now, and have more to come along the way depending on when Branthwaite, who has been described as a ‘superstar’ by writer and analyst Tactically Matt, triggers landmark moments in his United career, is thought to be plausible at this stage.
