Jarrad Branthwaite Man Utd Liverpool switch curiosity
Manchester United are reportedly the youngest club to show interest in a possible transfer deal for Everton Wonderkid Jarrad Branthwaite.
Liverpool are also among his admirers as the clubs take an interest in the 18-year-old described as a stylish center-back in a report on his future from the Daily Mail.
The teenager clearly appears to have a great future in the game and it will be exciting to see what to expect next after loaning out with Blackburn Rovers this season.
Both United and Liverpool need to get significantly stronger this summer, with the Mail noting that there are some questions about the future of Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe and Eric Bailly.
While the Red Devils are keen to hire a proven defender, the Mail notes that they may continue to build for the future and be tempted by a promising young talent like Branthwaite.
