Manchester United want to sign Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Manchester United have internally discussed signing Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin. 

According to a report from The Athletic, the Red Devils want to bolster their attacking department this summer and have earmarked the Toffees striker, along with Brentford’s Ivan Toney, as a potential option.

Calvert-Lewin has only a year left on his current contract at Goodison Park, and he has yet to sign a new deal at Everton.

Last month, Newcastle United made an attempt to sign the Everton striker, but they couldn’t meet the Toffees’ asking price for the player.

Eventually, the Magpies have pulled out of the race after the Toffees refused to lower their £40 million asking price.

United have shown interest in the player already, and it seems they have now held internal discussions to sign him. If they are serious about landing him, they will have to pay a fee around that figure, as Everton are unlikely to sell him on the cheap.

Everton are in strong position with financial rules

The Toffees have sold Lewis Dobbin and Ben Godfrey to Aston Villa and Atalanta, respectively, and they have done enough to stay within the Premier League’s financial limits.

As a result, Everton are under no pressure to sell any of their star players at the moment. That being said, Calvert-Lewin could still leave the club, considering that he is approaching the end of his contract, and the club could consider cashing in on him.

Man Utd are also interested in signing Calvert-Lewin’s teammate Jarrad Branthwaite. They have submitted another bid in the region of £50 million, but the Toffees have rejected it instantly.

Calvert-Lewin has struggled with injury issues in recent years, and while he is still key to Sean Dyche’s plans, Everton probably will not mind selling the England striker if they receive the right offer.
