Club ready to sell three big-name players to fund deal to sign Everton star – report


Manchester United are willing to sell three players in the summer in order to sign Jarrad Branthwaite from Everton, according to the Mirror. 

On Saturday, April 13, the tabloid announced on its website that United hopes Saudi Arabian teams will show interest in Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, and Rafael Varane in order to gather money for an offer on Branthwaite, who is 21 years old.

The Toffees defender, who has grown into a vital member of the team under Sean Dyche, is having a breakout season in the Premier League.

According to a Mirror story by Simon Mullock, Man United is looking to transfer aging stars to Saudi Arabia for exorbitant prices, indicating that a move away from Goodison Park may be imminent.

Can Everton afford to lose Jarrad Branthwaite? 

Considering his age, it is reasonable to conclude that the Englishman has matured swiftly after spending the previous season on loan at PSV.

Branthwaite has played in more than 2,500 minutes, contributing to two goals while playing solid defense [FotMob].

In the top five leagues in Europe, he has been among the best in terms of defensive statistics. In ninety minutes, the youthful player has amassed 1.89 tackles, 1.61 interceptions, 4.64 clearances, and 2.68 aerials won.

These numbers all indicate that the defender playing under Dyche is very good and is making an impression on the opposition.

Though his choice of full-back is more questionable, the Everton manager has discovered a reliable pairing with James Tarkowski.

Given the links to Manchester United, it is inevitable that the 21-year-old will need to pay a sizable sum of money to leave Merseyside.

If a high price is received, the Toffees’ financial woes that have dogged them all season might contribute to his sale.

If this offer is accepted, they will require a replacement center back, but it will be challenging to quickly replace Branthwaite’s abilities.
