According to The Sun, Everton are considering selling number one goalkeeper Jordan Pickford at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
The 25-year-old was one of England’s star players en route to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, but his form for Everton this season has been inconsistent at absolute best.
Meanwhile, a recent video published on social media showed Pickford seemingly engaging in an altercation outside a Sunderland pub, which has angered head coach Marco Silva.
According to The Sun, Pickford is now facing a fight to save his future at the club with Everton considering selling the Englishman in this summer’s transfer window, valuing him at £50m.
Meanwhile, The Mirror have claimed that Manchester United could move for the stopper if they lose David de Gea at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
The 6 foot 1 shot-stopper deserves huge credit for his performances at the 2018 World Cup, whilst he has had a number of fine games for Everton.
A lot of the goalkeeper’s work for the Toffees has been erratic, though, and if a club – potentially Man United – comes up with a big-money offer this summer then there is no question that the Merseyside club should take it.
Indeed, Pickford has only kept 23 clean sheets in his 81 appearances for Everton, whilst he has managed just 11 Premier League shutouts this term, featuring in every minute of the Toffees’ top flight campaign.

With time, the 17-cap international might become one of the best goalkeepers in Europe, but if an offer of anywhere near £50m were to arrive this summer then Everton should jump at the chance to cash in.
To be honest, it is unlikely that the Man United fans would be too enthused with the idea of Pickford replacing De Gea between the sticks.
