Exclusive: £100m-valued PL star won’t be Man United’s only ‘big-money’ summer signing

Priority one for Man United ahead of the summer transfer window is Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite; however, insiders have told Football Insider that he won’t be the only high-profile addition.

After suffering through injury setbacks during the 2023–24 season, United will give priority to recruiting a center-back over the offseason.

The Red Devils have been interested in Branthwaite for a long time; their interest in the Englishman extends back before INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe joined the team.

Football Insider has learned from a reliable source that Man United will raise the necessary money to pursue him this summer, and money won’t likely be an issue.

But sources say Branthwaite won’t be the only big-money arrival in the off-season – with several areas of Erik ten Hag’s squad under consideration by transfer chiefs.

Man United prioritise Branthwaite deal – he could be one of multiple big-money signings 

After the defender’s outstanding season in Merseyside, former Everton CEO Keith Wyness told Football Insider on Sunday, April 7, that Everton may ask for up to £100 million for the player.

It has also been reported that Real Madrid and Newcastle United are interested in the center back.

This season, he has made 34 appearances for relegation-threatened Everton in all competitions; all of those appearances have been in the starting lineup.

Goodison Park has a contract with the left-footer that runs through June 2027.

In the meantime, further negotiations behind the scenes have caused Football Insider to report on Monday, April 8, that Man United will permit Raphael Varane to go on a free transfer this summer.

His enormous salary will be freed up by the World Cup winner’s exit.
