Man United shortlist £65M rated England international as summer transfer target



Man United shortlist £65M rated England international as summer transfer target

According to the Daily Mail, if Everton do not sell centre-back Jarrad Branthwaite for £55million, the Red Devils will target a move for Guehi.

Man United desperately need defenders this summer as Raphael Varane is leaving the club and Jonny Evans’ contract is expiring next month.

The Red Devils are expected to sign two defenders in the summer transfer window and they will consider signing young defenders to balance the average age of the squad.

To strengthen the defensive position is the priority for Man United and Sir Jim Ratcliffe this summer, who will need to raise funds for transfer business by selling players.

The report in the Daily Mail states that Man United’s transfer budget is only £35million and they will have to generate funds by selling some players.

Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite is Man United’s top target for the centre-back position.

However, if Everton refuse to sell him for the right price, they have identified Guehi as an alternative.

Since joining Crystal Palace from Chelsea in an £18 million (fee via Guardian) move back in 2021, the central defender has impressed.

His performances have not gone unnoticed with the defender winning a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

Naturally, then, he has caught the eyes of other Premier League suitors.

The Telegraph reports that Palace have already started looking for his replacement as they feel he would be leaving the club in the near future.

As per the report in Telegraph, the Eagles would look to sell Guehi for above the club record fee of £50 million set by Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s move to Man United.
