Back in February, Jim Ratcliffe completed the ownership of a minority stake in Man Utd and this summer would be his first transfer window to reinforce the squad.

According to an exclusive story covered by The Sun, Man Utd are ready to start the new era with a bang by signing a top star for a huge discount.

Transfer: Report – Club ready to sell £224,000-a-week attacker to Man Utd in a swap deal

The British media outlet have mentioned that the Red Devils are in pole position to lure Jarrad Branthwaite from Everton as their first signing of the summer.

The Toffees value their prized asset, who earned a place in the England squad for the Euros, at £80m.

However, the Merseysiders have serious financial concerns and to raise funds, they may have to sell the young center half for half the price.

As per The Sun, Man Utd are ready to exploit the economic problems at Goodison Park to secure the signing of Branthwaite for just £40m.

The Old Trafford outfit must revamp their backline this summer keeping in view all the injuries suffered at the back.

It must also be taken into consideration that Varane and Evans are leaving the club and the best days of Maguire and Lindelof are long gone.

Therefore, a young and quality defender should be lured who can serve the club in the years to come and Branthwaite would be a top addition.

Signing the 21-year-old for just £40m would be a huge coup for Man Utd. For the latest updates, watch this space.
