Fabrizio Romano reveals why United are willing to walk away from Branthwaite talks with Everton, fans will be pleased

Manchester United are willing to pull out of negotiations with Everton over the signing of Jarrad Branthwaite should they feel the as though the asking price is unreasonable, Newspremises has gathered.

Negotiations between the two clubs for the seasoned center-back remain ongoing, following United’s initial £45 million offer being promptly rejected last Friday.

Everton is firm in their stance against selling Jarrad Branthwaite, demanding a steep price of £65-70 million, which Manchester United is unwilling to meet.

According to The Times, personal terms between Branthwaite and Manchester United were agreed upon last week, leaving Everton’s high valuation as the sole obstacle to finalizing the transfer.

Everton’s fragile financial situation, which resulted in two separate points deductions last season due to Profit and Sustainability breaches, necessitates player sales to stabilize their finances this summer. However, they might opt to sell players like Dominic Calvert-Lewin or the highly-rated Amadou Onana instead of Branthwaite.

Furthermore, Fabrizio Romano reported today that INEOS, the investment group, will withdraw from the deal if they perceive Everton’s price to include an inflated “United tax,” a situation that has plagued numerous negotiations in recent years.

For example, Ajax would not have demanded £86 million for Antony from any other club, highlighting a recurring issue in Manchester United’s transfer dealings that fans hope will soon be resolved.
