Man United keen on Pickford if De Gea leaves

  • Jordan Pickford

De Gea faces competition for his worldwide place from goalkeepers including Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga, and Saul came out in defence of the United star ahead of a friendly against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Sunday.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are ready to target the £60m-rated 24-year-old and try and bring him to Old Trafford in the new year.

Gary Neville admits Jordan Pickford isn't his "idea of what a goalkeeper should be" amid speculation that Manchester United are interested in the Everton star.

According to the same story, Pickford is seen as the "perfect" replacement for De Gea should the Spaniard indeed leave the Red Devils.

The English goalkeeper has been impressive at Everton this season, having arrived at Goodinson Park in 2017 from Sunderland.

Pickford was first choice for the Three Lions at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation and made his name with impressive shot-stopping, as well as prowess in stopping penalties.

Speaking before Pickford kept goal for England in their Uefa Nations League game against Croatia, Neville said: "I thought he was a risk before the World Cup".

The Manchester United 'keeper was Spain's number one at the World Cup, where he also made mistakes - most notably in their opening encounter against Portugal, in which he parried a Cristiano Ronaldo strike into the net.

Manchester United fans will not want to think about the prospect of losing one of the best goalkeepers in world football but given the fact he is yet to sign a new deal, the club must start making plans if the worse comes to worse. I always though a keeper should be dominant, ' he added. He [Pickford] doesn't look huge in goal but is agile and does make great saves.
