Manchester United are reportedly showing interest in signing goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. The England goalkeeper would love to stay with Everton in the future.
However, they are not willing to agree to his wage increase demands. Tottenham are also monitoring his situation for the next summer transfer window move.
MANCHESTER UNITED AND JORDAN PICKFORD TRANSFER LINKS FULL SHOW
According to reports, Manchester United are showing serious interest in signing Jordan Pickford. The report also claims that they will make a move in the next summer transfer window. However, discussions are happening actively between the club and his agent. The report also claims that Everton are also open to selling for the right price. However, they will not sell him in the January transfer window. The report also claims that the Toffees are trying hard to find a contract extension agreement with their NO 1 goalkeeper.
A source close to the player further said,
“Jordan wants to stay at Everton. He loves the place, and is settled in the area he lives. But the club is not willing to meet the wage increase he is asking for”.
Hence, Manchester United are hoping to take advantage of the situation. Everton are also struggling to balance their financial books for the season. They also hope to sign a forward that can help them avoid relegation this season. Hence, it looks like the Jordan Pickford talks are not the priority.
TOTTENHAM ARE ALSO MONITORING THE SITUATION
Tottenham interest in the goalkeeper should also concern Everton fans. The report claims that Spurs see Pickford as a long-term successor to Hugo Lloris. Hence, it looks like Manchester United have serious competition for his signature. Both clubs are ready to double the wages of the Everton goalkeeper. Hence, Everton must make a respectable contract extension offer. The England goalkeeper is ready to take a little less money for the Toffees.
However, it looks like Everton are disrespecting him with even bad contract offers. Therefore, there is a possibility that Everton will sell him in the next summer transfer window for the right price. Hence, it looks like Erik Ten Hag is still looking at goalkeeping options. David De Gea is ready to take a big pay cut to continue his stay at Manchester United. However, the reports claim that Erik Ten Hag might see Jordan Pickford as the future No 1 United goalkeeper.
Therefore, it looks like Manchester United, Tottenham and Everton are all hoping that their respective pieces fall rightly with the puzzle. Hence, the next summer transfer window should be exciting for the goalkeeping departments. All three concerned keepers including Pickford will hope to continue with their respective brilliant performances.
