The transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano has reported on his Twitter account that Manchester United and Everton have reached a full agreement for the permanent transfer of James Garner for a fee of around £15-20 million, which will be clearer later today and will most likely be made official by both clubs in the next hours.

The Italian reporter added that there are discussions currently ongoing between the Toffees and the player and his camp on personal terms. The young midfielder still hasn’t made a decision, since there are other two clubs interested in him. However, only Everton has an agreement with United at the moment.

James Garner should be leaving soon since it is being reported that he has already visited Everton’s Finch Farm training ground with personal terms agreed, so it should be a matter of time for it to be official that the young academy player will leave Manchester United after spending all of his youth career at the club.

The 21-year-old midfielder has spent the last 18 months on loan at Nottingham Forest, where he became a crucial part of the team getting promoted to the Premier League 23 years later. He returned this summer, but unfortunately, he didn’t feature a lot due to some injuries, which caused Erik ten Hag and the club’s board to decide to sell him.

There should be a buy-back clause

Even though Manchester United don’t want the player right now, he is still very young and has a lot of potential that can be achieved while working with someone like Everton’s manager Frank Lampard, who was one of the best midfielders in English football history. Hopefully, they manage to add a buy-back clause in the contract in case he becomes a world-class player.
