The two teams’ valuations, according to BBC Sport, are still far different, with Everton seeking at least £80 million for the Englishman.

According to the article, the Toffees think Branthwaite should be compared to Harry Maguire, who joined Man United for £80 million in 2019 after leaving Leicester City.

The report claims that the Toffees believe that Branthwaite deserves to be placed in the same bracket as Harry Maguire, who cost Man United £80m when he arrived from Leicester City in 2019.

It is believed that Everton needs to pay a little bit more than Maguire’s transfer fee—which is still a record for a defender—in order to permit Branthwaite to depart Goodison Park.

Josko Gvardiol’s £77 million move from RB Leipzig to Manchester City in the summer of last year is also said to have strengthened Everton’s position.

Before returning to the Toffees, the 21-year-old enjoyed a productive loan stint with PSV Eindhoven during the 2022–2023 season, playing for the Dutch powerhouse on 36 occasions across all competitions.

Branthwaite had a stellar 2023–24 season, making 41 appearances for Sean Dyche’s team, including 35 in the Premier League. He was one of the Merseyside team’s top performers that year.

According to reports, Premier League clubs have approved the introduction of a development plan that will curb spending beginning with the 2025–2026 season.

The spending cap proposals were approved by 16 teams, and their goal is to keep the gap between the Premier League’s lower-half teams and its financial titans from growing.

Nevertheless, a report from BBC Sport claims that three teams vying for European football—Manchester United, Manchester City, and Aston Villa—are thought to have voted against the proposal.
