Jarrad Branthwaite: Man Utd make opening transfer offer for Everton defender

Manchester United have made their opening offer for Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite.

Recruiting in the heart of defence has been marked as a priority for the FA Cup winners this summer.

Raphael Varane is leaving at the end of the month when his deal expires, while Jonny Evans has been offered a contract to stay on at Old Trafford.

Everton could look set to sell one of their main assets before the end of June to stay in line with Premier League Profit and Sustainability Rules.

Another Everton player who could fetch a sizeable fee is Amadou Onana – but no move has yet emerged for the midfielder.
