Manchester United are reportedly plotting an incredible £60m move for Everton and England shot-stopper Jordan Pickford.
United are monitoring the market with their own goalkeeper David de Gea with the Spain international will be soon entering the final year of his contract at Old Trafford.
According to reports, the England international has now become a £60m target for the Red Devils.
However, former United captain Gary Neville has claimed that he is still not convinced about Pickford’s ability.

Asked about the transfer claims, the United legend told Sky Sports: “I thought he was a risk before the World Cup. It was one of the points I was most nervous about.”
“I actually think international football suits him a lot in the sense of the way the team play.”
“I think the fact you get more time to play out the back than you normally would in the Premier League.”
“I think he’s suited to international football, I was nervous about him before the World Cup but he’s winning me over slowly.”
Pickford, 24, joined the Toffees in the summer of 2017 from Sunderland signing a five-year contract at Goodison Park.
The Merseysiders lured the Englishman for the initial fee of £25m, with the possibility of rising to £30m in add-ons.
