The recent 10-point penalty imposed on Everton has plunged the team into the relegation battle of the Premier League, casting doubts over their future.
Despite their recent upswing in form, the club now faces a challenging scenario, especially as they begin the process of contesting the penalty for violating Financial Fair Play regulations.
At this juncture, Everton’s financial status remains a matter of speculation.
A report from the Sunday Express claims that, should the need arise to offload players in the upcoming January window, Manchester United is showing interest in two key Everton figures, Jarrad Branthwaite and Amadou Onana.
Manchester United, on the lookout for new talent in both the center-back and midfielder positions, evidently have their sights set on these prominent Everton players.
While Everton is not keen on the idea of letting go of any of their squad members during the midseason window, circumstances might force their hand.
The acquisition of either or both players could potentially bolster Erik ten Hag’s team at Manchester United.
🚨 Manchester United are waiting to see what transpires with Everton in January, where any fire sale could see them make their move for Jarrad Branthwaite and Amadou Onana.
