Everton: This key-player faces an inevitable sale and has a choice of clubs to join!

Everton’s financial struggles have put the club in a position where they may need to sell key players, and Jarrad Branthwaite is one such asset drawing attention. The 21-year-old defender has caught the eye of several top clubs, including Manchester United, Newcastle United, and Tottenham.

Despite recently signing a new contract with Everton, it seems this move was more about maintaining his market value rather than expecting him to stay long-term at Goodison Park. With the club’s monetary woes looming large, cashing in on valuable players like Branthwaite appears inevitable.

However, selling starters during the January transfer window could jeopardize Everton’s fight against relegation. The cost of dropping down to the Championship would be substantial—not just in terms of lost Premier League prestige but also considering the unsustainable wage bill and the financial implications for their new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.

Branthwaite has been a standout performer this season under Sean Dyche’s guidance, even sparking talks about potential inclusion in England’s squad despite Everton’s precarious league standing. His departure would undoubtedly be a blow to the team’s survival hopes.

The sentiment among fans and presumably within the club is clear: if Branthwaite must be sold due to fiscal necessity, let that transaction occur after this critical season concludes. Evertonians hope to see their young star help secure Premier League status before any potential exit materializes.
