This is the second bid for Branthwaite that Everton has rejected this summer, after the club previously rejected a £35m offer in June.

And the management sees Everton Branthwaite, 21, is valued at between £70m and £80m. United officials believe that figure is unrealistic, but Everton have cited the sums they have spent on Harry Maguire (£80m), Wesley Fofana (£75m) and Josko Gvardiol (£77.6m) in the past five years to justify their valuation of the young defender.

Why did Everton reject £50m to sell Branthwaite?

Reports indicated that Everton’s management is keen on keeping the services of its defender, and does not intend to let him go, especially since the club is not forced to sell after it was able to settle its financial affairs recently.

It is not known whether Manchester United will return with an improved offer for Branthwaite, or whether the club will end their interest in signing the Toffees defender.

The defender, who made his England debut on June 3, joined Everton four years ago from Championship side Carlisle United.

The distinguished defender played 41 matches last season in various competitions, scoring 3 goals, and receiving 8 yellow cards, with a total of 3657 minutes played.
