Everton Expected a Bid 55 Times Higher Than the £35,000-a-week Fee They Paid for the Star

While Everton have at least secured Premier League security for another season, they look set to face another battle this summer when it comes to retaining one of Sean Dyche’s most reliable players.

The Toffees could be in for a dramatic few months as the proposed takeover by 777 Partners now appears unable to be completed and those at Goodison Park are in desperate need of another option. No takeover would prove disastrous not only off the field but on the field as well, and the door would then likely have no choice but to be open to the top players.

This toffee couldn’t live up to the previous hype.

Among those who could leave is Amadou Onana. The Belgian midfielder has reportedly attracted interest from Newcastle United and Arsenal in recent months and could secure a top move after another good season at Everton. And he may not be the only one to seal such a move this summer.

Amadou Onana for Everton

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United are prepared to offer £55m to sign Jarrad Branthwaite this summer, a deal that would certainly help address Everton’s financial concerns. However, the Toffees have reportedly insisted the defender is not for sale despite having the chance to earn 55 times the £1m they originally paid for Branthwaite from Carlisle United in 2020.

Depending on actions off the pitch, Everton could have no choice but to part ways with such players. Dyche recently admitted there could be sales this summer, telling The Guardian: “If the [777] If a takeover or a takeover doesn’t happen, then it will probably be dust and not sand. Because then who knows?

“I could imagine that you then have to earn everything yourself, because it’s not like there’s a bunch of money somewhere, so you have to earn it yourself. And if you make your own money, how do you get what you get?” lose?

“If someone leaves, how do you get the next one who is as good as the one leaving? There is no time for development.” [of young players] because this club doesn’t have time for that.”

Why Everton may need a Branthwaite sale

In an ideal world, Everton would be looking forward to improvements this summer to finally give Dyche the chance to get his side into mid-table in the Premier League and avoid the relegation battle. Of course, his team would be there without points deductions this season, but instead they have suffered the consequences for actions off the pitch.

Now that ideal world is still a long way off and the people at Goodison Park could find themselves in a situation where selling Branthwaite and paying his reported £35,000-a-week wages is their most viable option. The centre-back is certainly capable of progressing for a club of Manchester United’s caliber, but his potential success would not ease the frustration of being sold to Everton.

With the season coming to an end, 777’s takeover is still ongoing and United are reportedly still willing to make a bid for Branthwaite, so the young star is one to keep an eye on.
