Manchester United on alert as Premier League target may be sold cheap

A Manchester United target may be available on the cheap this summer.

The player in question is Jordan Pickford, whom Manchester United have been linked with for a while.

Reports earlier this month claimed that Erik Ten Hag has been forced to consider replacements for David de Gea and the name at the top of the Dutchman’s summer wish list to replace his current number-one is Everton and England’s Jordan Pickford.

A fee of around £45m was touted at the time but a reduced fee may now be on the cards.

According to the Sun, Everton could be forced to sell several star players including Jordan Pickford this summer in order to balance the books.

Over the course of the last four years, Everton have incurred losses amounting to a staggering £430m and this financial turmoil has caught the attention of the Premier League.

The report suggests that Everton are prepared to sell Jordan Pickford and have already identified Crystal Palace’s Sam Johnstone as a potential replacement, and due to the looming accounting deadline, Everton might have to part ways with Pickford at a reduced price.
