We do know that the initial bid of £43million was turned down by the Merseysiders, who value their prized asset at around £70million.

MEN claim Man Utd are now ready to ‘proceed’ with a new move and the offer would explain how serious they are about signing Branthwaite.

In the 2022-23 campaign, the English center half impressed on loan in the Dutch Eredivisie for PSV Eindhoven.

Moreover, last term, he proved to be fantastic for the Goodison Park outfit in the Premier League.

It is stated that the 21-year-old is the priority signing wanted by Erik ten Hag to reinforce his defense in the summer transfer window.

United will be without four time Champions League winner, Raphael Varane, next season as the Frenchman is leaving on a Bosman.

Former club captain, Harry Maguire, and Swedish center back, Victor Lindelof, are past their primes and should be replaced.

On the other hand, first choice CB, Lisandro Martinez, has been injury prone since joining the Red Devils from Ajax two years ago.

Therefore, Man Utd must bring in a top center half and Jarrad Branthwaite is the boy most desired at Old Trafford.

Have your say – How much should Man Utd bid now to secure the star from Everton?
