Man Utd draw up four-man transfer shortlist for summer which includes Premier League star wanted by Tottenham

Man Utd draw up four-man transfer shortlist for summer which includes Premier League star wanted by Tottenham

Manchester United could be set for a busy summer transfer window.

Manchester United have reportedly drawn up a four-man shortlist ahead of the summer transfer window.

During the summer of 2023, United were busy as they spent big to bring in the likes of Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund.

However, their performances have been below par as Erik ten Hag’s men currently sit sixth in the Premier League, six points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Their European campaign ended prematurely after a dismal Champions League group stage.

Looking ahead to the summer transfer window, it has been reported that United have already got four players on their shortlist.

According to the Daily Mail, United’s new minority owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his INEOS team are looking to bring in two young centre-backs.

It has been reported that Everton star Jarrad Branthwaite is on the Old Trafford club’s shortlist.


However, United are set to face competition from Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid.

Apart from Branthwaite, United are believed to be keeping tabs on Benfica’s Antonio Silva, Jean Clair Todibo at Nice and Lille youngster Leny Yoro.

It has been claimed that Yoro has also caught the eyes of Madrid.

According to Football Insider, Everton could sell Branthwaite for a ‘big fee’ this summer.


Journalist Pete O’Rourke wrote: “Everton duo Amadou Onana and Jarrad Branthwaite are in line to be sold in the summer, sources have told Football Insider.

“The Toffees need to raise funds amid their financial woes, and the pair have emerged as the obvious candidates for the club to sell. The club remain in financial turmoil amid their fight to remain in the Premier League, their pending takeover by 777 Partners and their 10-point deduction for breaching Profit and Sustainability rules in November. Both Branthwaite and Onana have been the subject of widespread interest in recent months following their standout displays this season and are expected to fetch “huge fees”.
