Ironically enough, there’s been hours of debate in the Transfer Tavern between the Tottenham and Manchester United supporters over which side boasts the better goalkeeper over the years.
We only say its ironic due to recent reports from ClubCall that both Premier League giants are ready to commence a seismic transfer battle as the bid to land a potential long-term replacement in the shape of Sunderland stopper Jordan Pickford.
The England under-21 international impressed on loan at Preston North End earlier this season and has been touted for a bright future in the game, leading to reported interest.
The Red Devils have seen their star stopper David De Gea continually linked with a blockbuster move to Real Madrid, a move that would leave a gaping hole between the posts at Old Trafford.
In the past, Spurs ace Hugo Lloris has been mooted as a potential target for French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
At just 22 years of age, the Black Cats custodian could be a regular for well over a decade, though the Wearside outfit are in a strong bargaining position as thing stand.
He is under contract at the Stadium of Light until 2020, meaning Sam Allardyce is no little rush to sell.
Will Pickford be England’s Number 1 some day?
