Manchester United legend Teddy Sheringham doesn’t think his former club should splash £70m on Everton and England star Jarrad Branthwaite.

The 21-year-old defender has been a key target for the Red Devils this summer, with reports stating that they had offered around £35m for his services. However, it was an offer that was dismissed instantly with Everton reportedly demanding a figure closer to £70m.

With the club not under intense pressure in relation to selling players before the June 30 deadline for the years accounts, Branthwaite is more likely to remain as the Athletic’s David Ornstein revealed Everton would rather sell academy prospects instead.

“To be honest with you, I quite like Lisandro Martinez at a left-sided centre-back, and I don’t think Manchester United need another one,” Sheringham told Poker Sites. “Erik ten Hag already has that balance at the back, so if Martinez plays, then I don’t think they need another left footed defender. 

“One’s an Argentinian international who’s won the World Cup, the other is an up-and-coming player who they’ll need to spend a lot of money on. They’re not going to play two centre-halves because that defeats the point of having one of them in there. I don’t think that’s the important signing that needs to be made at the moment.”
