The Everton defender is Red Devils’ top choice for a defensive addition this summer, but they are still far from being able to reach the Toffees’ valuation for the Englishman.

Ten Hag’s team reportedly made an initial offer of £35 million, which could have increased to £43 million with performance-related add-ons. However, Everton rejected their proposal right away.

According to reports, the Toffees think Branthwaite should be sold for a fee in the region of £80m comparable to the likes of Josko Gvardiol and Harry Maguire.

Although the Red Devils still have an interest in Branthwaite, a transfer is unlikely to happen given their meagre starting budget of approximately £50 million for the summer window.

The Red Devils are still keeping an eye on Matthijs de Ligt of Bayern Munich, whose development Ten Hag guided during their successful Ajax stint, according to talkSPORT.

Nevertheless, it is reported that Man United has discovered that a deal to sign De Ligt at the Theatre of Dreams is “realistic,” and at this point in his career, the defender will be eager to take on a new challenge.

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.
