RUMOUR: Man Utd could launch shock Pickford swoop as they consider letting De Gea go

Manchester United may consider a shock bid for Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the midst of uncertainty encompassing David De Gea’s future, reports propose.

As per the Telegraph, United are not persuaded they need to broaden De Gea’s agreement, which runs out in June and procures him an astounding £350,000, and could allow him to go free of charge in June.

The Spanish shot-stopper, who was omitted from Luis Enrique’s Spain squad for the international break, suffered a poor start to the season with a raft of errors most notably at Brentford.

And United are also dealing with a high wage bill that reached a Premier League record of £384million last season.

The Red Devils announced earlier this week that their salaries have increased by a whopping £61.6m from the previous year.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s return as well as Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane’s arrivals led to a 19.1 per cent increase in their salary bill as well as a net loss amounting to £115.5m.

United are assessing their long-term plans and a change between the sticks can’t be ruled out, even though De Gea, 31, has improved recently and has been integral in the last 11 years at Old Trafford.

That could bring England’s No1 Pickford, 28, into the frame come January.

The Everton shot stopper has various clubs carefully monitoring his situation as he will have just one year left on his Everton contract at the end of the season.

'Something's just clicked inside him now' - Man Utd supporters react to Diogo Dalot's emergence

Diogo Dalot has been a fringe player at Old Trafford for a few seasons, in any event, leaving the club on a season-long credit at a certain point.

However, the 23-year-old has laid down a good foundation for himself as the best option right-back under Erik ten Witch while likewise arising as a key player for Portugal.

And Manchester United supporters are glad to see the Portuguese but it time and effort in order to get better as a player and put his Old Trafford career back on track.

Adam-Utd (through RedCafe): “He never really seemed to care before, just got skinned so easily 1v1 and gave up. Something’s just clicked inside him now, he’s a completely different player. Ever since he got destroyed by Villareal it’s like he looked in the mirror and said nope never again.”

VanDeBank: “He’s clearly performing better. He’s more effective in the final third, which for a large part is attributable to more confidence and a proper team. His main defensive weakness has improved through more confidence and being put through the ringer a few times. Dalot’s progress has been a slow, consistent climb. Truth is, his athleticism, defensive positioning and build up play were on display last season as well.”

ForeverRed1: “He is now showing his true potential and then some. He’s clearly listening to the new manager and training hard to show what he can do. If he carries on the way he is, we have a seriously good player on our hands. This is why we wanted ETH, this is what he had to do when we couldn’t go out and just buy a new starting XI. We needed players like Dalot to step up and he did.”

tenpoless: “I’ve always had faith in him. I never really liked AWB, he’s too one dimensional. Dalot looks like one of those players who can be coached to be better, not necessarily world class, but better.”

golden_blunder: “Hands up, I for one never trusted him as a defender. But he’s doing brilliantly under a proper coaching system and doesn’t have to line up alongside Lindelof-Maguire which must have sapped his confidence. Long may it continue.”

red woppit: “It certainly looks like Ten Hag and his coaching team have worked hard with Dalot. He has a lot more confidence, both defending, where I felt he was quite weak, and attacking, where he seemed stronger early in his career, but last season he seemed to lose everything.”
