David De Gea has been the No.1 goalie at Manchester United since 2011 but it is time to finally get rid of him.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Red Devils are interested in hiring the services of England international and Everton star, Jordan Pickford.
According to a recent report covered by The Sun, the Three Lions shot-stopper is looking for a decent pay rise but the Toffees are only ready to offer him a few thousand more than his current salary of £100,000 a week.
The deadlock in talks has alerted Man Utd, who are prepared to nearly double the wages and make the player earn around £200,000 a week, £10.4million a year to move to Old Trafford.
Pickford has played in an average Everton side for quite some time but he has been England’s No.1 goalkeeper under the management of Gareth Southgate.
The 28-year-old star has made 50 appearances for his country and was a key member of the side at the World Cup in 2018 (4th place), at Euro 2020 (runners-up) and in Qatar WC 2022 (quarter final).
On the other hand, David De Gea is past his best and has been average for a long time. He did not even play a single game at the European Championships and Luis Enrique did not even select him to take part in the World Cup.
Reports indicate the Spanish international is ready to take a pay cut in order to extend his stay at Manchester United.
Lately, in the FA Cup victory against Everton, the 32-year-old made a blunder to help the Merseysiders equalize.
Have your say – Should Man Utd extend De Gea’s stay or sign Pickford to replace him at Old Trafford?
