Manchester United are plotting an incredible £ 60million raid for Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, according to reports.
The Red Devils are monitoring the market with their own shot stopper David de Gea soon to be entering the final year of his Old Trafford contract.
De Gea can walk away from the club for free in 2020, meaning United are soon set to be faced with the dilemma of holding on to their prized asset or cashing in before losing him for nothing.

The goalkeeper's stock has sharply risen since he established himself as England No 1
If De Gea does decide his future lies elsewhere, Jose Mourinho's side will look to England No 1 Pickford to fill the gloves, according to The Sun.
United are believed to be long-term admirers of Pickford, with Mourinho noting his ability to play out from defense with confidence and orchestrate an attack.
The 24-year-old joined Everton in a £ 30million move in June 2017, following the relegation of his former club Sunderland.

Pickford put pen to paper on a fresh six-year deal with the Toffees in September, making him one of the club's top earners with the contract worth an estimated £ 4m per year.
Pickford fought off competition from Jack Butland and Nick Pope to take the England shirt at the Russia World Cup, following the dropping of Joe Hart from the senior squad.
He is expected to take between the sticks once more on Sunday as England host Croatia in the UEFA Nations League.
