The Red Devils initially moved in with a proposal worth £43million for the English central defender but it was turned down by the Toffees.

According to The Mail, Man Utd will now make a bigger second offer in order to convince the Merseysiders to sell Branthwaite.

The British media outlet have mentioned that the Goodison Park club value the player at around £75million and will have to consider mammoth offers due to their economic concerns.

As per Football Insider, Everton are not impressed by the low bid made by the 20-time English champions for their prized asset.

Last year, Man City paid a fee of £77.6million to sign Gvardiol, and the Toffees rate Branthwaite even more than the Croatian international.

Despite financial issues, Football Insider claim they have no intentions of selling the 21-year-old center back and have slapped a mammoth price tag of £90million on him.

If Man Utd do end up paying £90million, then Branthwaite will become the most expensive defender in the history of football.

However, United have concerns of their own and if Everton refuse to negotiate, then they will move to other defensive targets (ESPN).

Have your say – How big should Man Utd’s second offer be to lure Branthwaite?
