According to a report from Express, Manchester United have made Everton’s goalkeeper Jordan Pickford their top priority this summer. It is understood that the Red Devils are looking to bring competition for David de Gea, who has failed to prove that he fits into Erik ten Hag’s system at Old Trafford in the following season.

Pickford’s Campaign With Everton This Season

The 29-year-old has had a decent campaign with the Toffees, putting in several influential displays between the sticks for them. He also managed to obtain a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and had a decent run with the national squad.

The Everton goalie has featured in 38 matches this season, conceding 56 goals while keeping eight clean sheets in all competitions. However, he needs to work on his ball distribution from the back, as he has only completed 51.8% of his attempted passes in the Premier League.

Should Ten Hag Bring Him To Manchester United?

With David de Gea’s future uncertain and the desire to maintain a high level of competition, the potential addition of Everton shot-stopper Jordan Pickford could bring more prospects to the defensive department.

Pickford has showcased his shot-stopping abilities and consistency over the years. His performances for Everton and the England national team have highlighted his agility, reflexes, and ability to make crucial saves. Adding such a competent and reliable goalkeeper could elevate the overall quality of United‘s squad.

Beyond his shot-stopping prowess, Pickford possesses an impressive range of passing and distribution skills. His ability to pick out accurate long passes or initiate quick counter-attacks is a testament to his vision and composure on the ball. Pickford’s precise distribution enables his team to swiftly transition from defence to attack, adding an extra dimension to Everton’s play which could be the same for the Red Devils upon his arrival at Old Trafford.
