According to The Sun, Jordan Pickford’s transfer price may be lower than expected.
For the 2022/23 season, Manchester United have activated the option to extend the contracts until June 2024 with players Marcus Rashford, Diogo Dalot, Luke Shaw and Fred. In particular, Shaw soon signed a long-term agreement, and Dalot and Rashford are also about to be awarded new contracts.
Man Utd alone needs more time to negotiate with David de Gea about a new contract. According to Athletic, Man Utd wants to sign a new one, but on the condition that De Gea has to reduce his salary . He currently receives a salary of £ 375 thousand / week at Old Trafford.
Even Man Utd is ready to replace De Gea when needed. That is why, Man Utd soon eyeed a number of potential targets. Most recently, Everton’s Jordan Pickford was linked with the Reds. The player is said to be worth £45 million.
However, the Pickford could be on sale for a lower price this summer. According to The Sun, Everton need money urgently to balance the books. As a result, they may be forced to sell a player like Pickford below valuation.
Therefore, Man Utd can recruit Pickford at a low price if it can ensure the deal takes place in the next few days.
