Man Utd identify Everton keeper Pickford as De Gea successor

Manchester United have identified Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford as a replacement for David de Gea.

The Sun says Jose Mourinho and his staff have been impressed with the new England international's form since he joined Everton and he tops their emergency list.

The annual Real Madrid pursuit of De Gea is anticipated at Old Trafford and they are waiting to see if their brilliant No 1 finally has his head turned.

And while that drama looms once more, United have their sights set firmly on the Spaniard's potential successor at Goodison Park.

A realistic price tag if United come calling could be around £50m which would not put off Mourinho's money men in the aftermath of De Gea's sale.
