Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to voice their unhappiness at being linked with a £60m move for Everton’s Jordan Pickford as a replacement for David de Gea, according to The Sun.
Their current Spanish stopper will soon be entering the final year of his contract, and with no talk of a new deal as of yet, the Red Devils seem to be scouring the market for possible replacements.
The Toffees’ number one has emerged as one of the best goalkeepers in England since breaking through with Sunderland, form which made the Merseysiders part with £30m for his services.
Quickly, the 24-year-old has also made the England number one shirt his own in the last year, where he has gone on to play a crucial part in the Three Lions’ World Cup success as well as the recent Nations League victories.
However, some United fans still aren’t keen on the keeper arriving at Old Trafford…
I don’t know what’s funnier, the fact someone is daft enough to think we’d bid for Pickford if De Gea doesn’t sign a new contract or that Everton fans think he’s worth more than £60m. https://t.co/sm7MxETM3m

If David de Gea refuses to commit to a contract extension, can we like I don't know sign Jan Oblak instead of Jordan Pickford

Even as a fan reports that Pickford is being lined up to replace De Gea epitomises what’s wrong at #mufc. Good players don’t want to arrive & play under Jose whilst current good players want to leave. Combine this with defensive tactics & the common denominator is #MourinhoOut!

Unpopular opinion but when De Gea inevitably leaves unless we're getting Oblak I'd rather make Romero first choice GK with Pereira/Dean Henderson coming through the ranks than spend ridiculous money on GKs like Pickford #mufc https://t.co/QAQartGN6X

People gassing Pickford to be De Gea’s replacement if you think Pickford is United quality go support City.

When De Gea was 24 he was turning into superman already under LVG. Pickford is actually nowhere close to being at that level and he’s soon to be 25
