Man United ‘monitoring’ double transfer following Sean Dyche comments



| Last Updated:


Manchester United are continuing to monitor an Everton duo following comments from Sean Dyche about their summer transfer business.

Manchester United are looking to sign a central-defender this coming summer, with the futures of multiple players uncertain following a pending clearing out from INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

As Lisandro Martínez is the only one of Erik ten Hag‘s centre-back who is not in his 30s, the futures of Jonny Evans, Harry Maguire, and Raphaël Varane are all up in the air.

With this in mind, the Manchester Evening News have reported that the club are still monitoring the progress of Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite while keeping an eye on midfielder Amadou Onana, who both played during the recent 2-0 United win over Everton at Old Trafford.

This comes in light of Sea Dyche’s comments last week that Everton do not need to sell players despite breaching profit and sustainability rules and being deducted 6 points earlier this season.

“We don’t want to sell any good players. It’s as simple as that,” Dyche said. “And he (Branthwaite)’s proven to be a very good player.

“We’re not in the business of trying to sell players. You only sell players if you have to sell players or there’s a problem. There’s no problem. Therefore, I’m just hoping we don’t need to sell players. At the minute, we certainly don’t. So we will see.”

Everton are currently fighting a relegation battle, with the club sat just four points off the drop with 10 games to go – if they do go down, selling Branthwaite and Onana may be their only option.
