Manchester United Identify Number One Choice To Replace David De Gea

Everton and England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is Manchester United's top target if David de Gea, as expected, leaves in the summer according to The Mirror.

Only this week, de Gea had a one year contract extension triggered by the Red Devils but that will only secure the Spaniard's immediate futrure.

The move was designed to ensure de Gea stayed put during the January transfer window but United fear the worst next summer. There is no shortage of interest in de Gea and Juventus and PSG will lead the chase.

De Gea has been one of United best players of recent years and he has been a regular winner of the club's Player of the Season award. In fact he's won it four out of the last five years.

With United currently looking like they won't make the Champions League spots, de Gea may need some persuading to stay in Manchester and club officials have already started looking at his potential replacement. That's where Everton goalkeeper Pickford comes in but he will cost United an estimated £70million.  

Pickford shot to international prominence with a string of excellent performance for England during this year's World Cup as Gareth Southgate's men reached the semi-finals. His performances at club level have been impressive too and he is the sort of character that United would need as they look to fill the huge void left by de Gea.

Since signing for the Toffees from Sunderland, Pickford has been a virtual ever-present and they will do everything in their power to keep him at Goodison.
