Daniel Jebbison is a wanted man this summer and Everton are expected to make a second bid for the striker, after already putting £5m on the table.
That’s according to TeamTalk, who claim the Toffees have offered £5m and add-ons for the young striker. They also claim that Aston Villa and Leeds are interested in the teenager.
United have apparently rejected that opening bid from Goodison Park. But TeamTalk claim Everton will come again as they look to repeat their capture of Dominic Calvert-Lewin a few seasons back.
Sky’s Kaveh Solhekol has also confirmed there is interest on his own Twitter account. He suggests there are at least three Premier League teams looking at ‘Jebbo’.
Despite not featuring this season as yet in the Championship, Jebbison is widely regarded as one of the better young talents at Bramall Lane. In fact, most United fans are surprised we haven’t seen more of him.
He made an immediate impact on proceedings last term. Coincidentally, he scored against Everton on his debut. Jebbison was expected to go out on loan this season. But this latest round of interest looks set to have changed the picture.
United’s board are standing firm once again…for now. However, a second Everton bid could well tempt the club into a sale.
Our View: Ideally keep Jebbison but if the money is right it’s hard to say no
The big question really is what is the right money? £5m is a nothing fee really given his potential and the impact he had last season.
On the other hand, should Everton come back with around £10m and then some add-ons, it would be hard to turn down. After all, Jebbison has only played a handful of games for United and the bid is based mainly on potential.
However, it won’t go down well with the Blades fanbase if he is sold. Blades fans will feel others need to go first, not someone who has potential to carry us for the next few seasons.
The board, yet again, faces a big few weeks. Incomings are a must, especially now we have £24m in the bank from Aaron Ramsdale and other saleable assets.
