Manchester United eyeing move for one of England’s best up-and-coming keepers

pickforddManchester United supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern are not really sure what to make of the news coming from the Daily Star – with the publication suggesting that the Red Devils are monitoring Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

The highly-rated shot-stopper is currently on loan at Championship outfit Preston North End, and is impressing under the stewardship of Simon Grayson.

The Red Devils’ goalkeeping situation is a bit of a mess at the moment, with both Victor Valdes and Sam Johnstone set to leave Old Trafford, due to the sheer lack of game time they are getting under Van Gaal.

Our resident Manchester United fans over by the pool table here in the Transfer Tavern admit they haven’t seen much of Pickford play, but from what they are hearing from our landlord, he sounds like he could be one hell of a goalkeeper!

Our landlord admits he has gone to watch Preston North End play at Deepdale a few times this season, and thinks that Pickford is undoubtedly going to be involved in the England senior team in the years to come, it’s only a matter of time!

Manchester United fans….. What do you make of this news? Have you seen Pickford play? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
