Everton want £50m for Manchester United target Pickford

Everton have reportedly made Jordan Pickford available for transfer, amid speculation that Manchester United are looking to snap him up.

The England international has had a mixed campaign at club level since playing a major part in the Three Lions’ run to the last four of the World Cup.

Pickford was criticised for his display in last month’s 3-2 loss to Newcastle United, which he followed up with back-to-back clean sheets against Chelsea and West Ham United.

However, the 25-year-old was caught up in a scuffle outside a Sunderland bar last weekend, leading to some stern words from manager Marco Silva.

Pickford now faces a fight for his future as Everton are willing to cash in for £50m, with that money going straight towards bringing in Nick Pope from Burnley for a fifth of the price.

Man United may be monitoring developments as it has been claimed that they have identified the ex-Sunderland stopper as a possible replacement for David de Gea, who is looking increasingly unlikely to sign a new contract.

Atletico Madrid keeper Jan Oblak is another rumoured target for the Red Devils.
