Manchester United are widely reporteded to be eyeing new recruits for the center-back position in the upcoming January transfer window.

Among the top contenders is Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite.

While United has several potential signings in mind, including Antonio Silva from Benfica and Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo, Branthwaite’s impressive stint on loan at PSV Eindhoven under Ruud van Nistelrooy has garnered attention.

Although the young defender is discussing a new contract with Everton, his growing prowess is drawing interest from several clubs, including Manchester City, indicating that his future at Goodison Park remains uncertain.

United have this week also been linked with a move for Sporting Libon defender Gonacalo Inacio, with a potential January move in mind.
