Jordan Pickford

Manchester United could have a new man in between the posts at the start of next season following the news that the Red Devils are eyeing a world record bid for Everton shot stopper Jordan Pickford as they try to replace goalkeeper David De Gea.

Spanish international player De Gea has been in a contract standoff with Manchester United in the last few months with the Premier League giants desperate to secure his long-term future at the club.

The 28-year-old is a subject of strong interest from foreign clubs.

Italian champions Juventus and French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have been linked with the Spaniard ahead of the New Year.

David De Gea initially had six months left on his contract but Manchester United have exercised the clause of the extra year in his deal until 2020.

This will give the Red Devils more time in their bid to convince the player that his long-term future lies at Old Trafford.

The Daily Express say that De Gea is asking to be offered new contract terms of around £350,000 thus making him the highest earner at the club alongside the unsettled Alexis Sanchez.

It was also revealed that the Red Devils are eyeing a big money move for Pickford if they fail to agree a new contract with De Gea.

Manchester United will have to offer more than the £72m world record transfer fee Chelsea paid to prise goalkeeper Kepa Arribazalaga from Athletic Bilbao in the summer.
