Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount, but they are prepared to bid significantly less than Chelsea’s asking price of £80 million. United value Mount at around £55 million, which is about £25 million less than Chelsea’s valuation. This discrepancy is due to Mount’s recent dip in form and injuries during the last season [oai_citation:1,Exclusive: Man Utd & Brighton eyeing Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall at bargain £25m fee]( [oai_citation:2,Man Utd may overpay by £25m to sign Mason Mount as Chelsea star suffers major decline | Football | Sport |]( Additionally, United are also eyeing Leicester City’s Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall.

Manchester United are ready to bid £25m less than the asking fee to sign Branthwaite, as per reports in the British media.

The Red Devils have let in 58 goals in the Premier League with just one game to go and the first thing they must do in the summer is reinforce the backline.

According to a recent story published by The Daily Mail, Man Utd are prepared to offer a fee of £55m to sign Jarrad Branthwaite from Everton.

The 21-year-old has three years left on his contract with the Toffees, who want to keep him but may have to sell to stay within profit and sustainability rules.

He has been the leader of the Merseysiders’ backline this season and they value him at around £80m

Therefore, if Man Utd offer £55m i.e. £25m less than the asking fee for Branthwaite, then it might not come as any surprise to see Everton turn the bid down.

In the current campaign, so far, the former Carlisle United central defender has made 34 appearances in the Premier League and under Sean Dyche.
