According to The Mirror, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is interested in signing Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford this summer – if they're forced to sell David De Gea.

The Red Devils have now appointed Solskjaer as their permanent manager following an impressive interim spell in charge, and it promises to be a key summer at Old Trafford.

Major incomings will be key, but they could also be forced to sell star goalkeeper De Gea, given that he's entering the final year of his contract with the club.

 

De Gea would be a huge loss to this United side, and it seems that they are already lining up other goalkeepers for this summer, just in case a deal is needed.

The Mirror now claim that United have two targets in mind, with Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak wanted, and Solskjaer keen on Everton stopper Jordan Pickford.

Pickford, 25, has been Everton's starting goalkeeper since his 2017 move from Sunderland, and also emerged as England's top stopper in that time too.

The £100,000-a-week star (Spotrac) has shown some issues this season, but remains England's best goalkeeper, and the hope will be that he irons out those problems in the future.

United would have to pay big money to land Pickford, with Everton believed to be seeking at least £60million – more than twice what they paid less than two years ago.
