According to an exclusive story covered by The Sun, Man Utd are preparing an offer worth £80million to finally sign Branthwaite from Everton.

The famous British media outlet have mentioned that the Old Trafford club want to make Jason Wilcox their new transfer guru and believe his appointment will put them in pole position to lure the Toffees star.

Wilcox has close working relationship with the 21-year-old defender’s agent, David Reeves, and is expected to press for his signing once he joins United.

It is reported that Branthwaire would cost more than £80million and keeping in view the defensive concerns, Man Utd have to pay the fee to get the deal done.

In the current season, Jarrad has arguably been the best player for Everton, who are struggling in the bottom half of the table, after points deduction. He has helped the Merseysiders keep eight clean sheets (29 appearances) in the Premier League.

Everton are 16th in the table and Man Utd are 7th and both the teams have let in 48 goals each in 32 league games thus far.

The 20-time English champions need a solid defense to bounce back next season. In your view, should they pay £80million to sign Jarrad Branthwaite?
