Agbonlahor hands Man United name of centre-back to sign


Former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has urged Manchester United to sign Everton centre back Jarrad Branthwaite in the summer transfer window.

Agbonlahor believes Branthwaite would fit the Old Trafford club, adding that Raphael Varane will leave Man United at the end of the season because his contract will not be renewed.

The former England international said (via talkSPORT):

“It just makes sense, doesn’t it? Spurs, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool, they have their centre-halves sorted really.

“You look at Manchester United. Martinez – a lot of injuries this season. People aren’t sure of Maguire, but I think he does a good job.

“I think Branthwaite has the composure, the speed and the aggression. Varane will go as well. They are not going to give him a new contract. I think he fits in right in there.”
