Manchester United are reportedly setting their sights on Jordan Pickford if David De Gea refuses to commit his future to the club.
United's No.1, De Gea, is stalling on signing a new contract amid the clubs faltering start to the Premier League campaign.
A deal has been on the table for some time but the Spaniard has yet to put pen-to-paper as his future remains subject to intense transfer speculation.
Juventus as well as Real Madrid are keeping tabs on De Gea's situation.
Should De Gea leave Old Trafford, it appears United will target Everton's Pickford, who'll reportedly command a £60 million transfer fee via BBC Sport.
Jose Mourinho is believed to be a big fan of Pickford.
The 24-year-old rose to prominence at Sunderland after breaking through the clubs academy. He eventually sealed a £30 million transfer to Everton in 2017.
He played in every single Premier League game last season, and was the main man between the sticks for England at the World Cup, producing heroics in a penalty shootout against Colombia.
It's believed the United staff are impressed with Pickford, who's renown for his shot-stopping prowess and his incredible distribution.
Meanwhile, De Gea has been United's best performer for several seasons - winning the 'Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year' award four times.
Whilst being named 'Manchester United's Players' Player of the Year' three times.
He has also been selected in the 'Premier League Team of the Year' in the last four seasons.
De Gea's individual accolades reads like a laundry list but in his eights seasons at Old Trafford, he's only won the Premier League once.
Will De Gea leave England in the summer? Watch this space.
