Manchester United could be set to look at Everton’s Jordan Pickford as their Goalkeeper replacement for David De Gea. According to Mike McGrath from The Daily Telegraph . Man United are deciding on if they should trigger the contract extension in David De Gea’s contract which would see the Spaniard stay at the club until 2024. With the future of De Gea uncertain it means that Manchester United are assessing their long term Goalkeeper plans.
Pickford has been one of Everton’s star players over the past couple season including many key performances which helped keep Everton in the Premier League last season. England’s Number One has less than 2 years remaining on his Everton contract with the club keen to tie him down to a new long term contract. Signed for an initial fee of £25 Million back in 2017 you would imagine Everton would be demanding a fee upwards of £50 Million for one of their key players.
With Manchester United interested and previous interest from Tottenham Hotspur it is apparent that top clubs in the Premier League are monitoring Jordan Pickford’s situation at Everton and will keep a very close eye on if he signs a new Everton contract. Pickford missed Everton’s 1-0 win against West Ham United due to a thigh injury he picked up in during his stellar performance in the 0-0 draw against Liverpool at Goodison Park.
Toffee Blues says;
2/5 – Rumours linking Jordan Pickford to a move to Manchester United might be a little premature currently but it shows that top clubs in England are considering signing Everton’s Star Keeper and if no movement is made soon by Everton to agree a contract then they might soon have to consider their Goalkeeper situation and cashing in on Pickford.
