Ex-Manchester United star urges INEOS to sign breakout Premier League player



| Last Updated:


Lee Sharpe, a three-time Premier League winner with Manchester United, has urged the Red Devils to sign Everton star Jarrad Branthwaite

In what has proven to be a challenging season for Everton, Branthwaite has constantly impressed during his breakout season of Premier League football.

Amongst the confusion of points deductions and possible new owners, Everton have fallen well short of their aspirations, once again nearing the relegation zone.

With the club last winning a Premier League match in December of last year, it seems inevitable that Branthwaite and fellow United target Amadou Onana will leave Merseyside this summer.

If an exit from Everton is to come to fruition for the Englishman, then it’s one that Lee Sharpe believes Manchester United cannot afford to miss out on.

In the wake of Lisandro Martinez’s constant battles with injury, United have relied on the services of four senior central defenders in Jonny Evans, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof, and Harry Maguire.

Of the four names mentioned, all are unlikely to spend their long-term future at Old Trafford, something that at just 21 years of age, Branthwaite could well do.

Speaking about the Premier League star to BetVictor, Sharpe explained exactly what Branthwaite can bring to the United backline, urging INEOS to look at the player this summer.

“Jarrad Branthwaite is certainly a signing they should look at this summer. He’s a big, strong defender who can play with the ball.

“He’s fit, he’s young and he’s certainly the type of player you need to look at.”

It has been indicated in reports over the last few weeks that Branthwaite will be available for approximately £75 million, however with Everton’s uncertain financial situation they may be forced to lower their asking price.
