Manchester United want Jordan Pickford if they lose David De Gea

The annual Real Madrid pursuit of De Gea is anticipated at Old Trafford and they are waiting to see if their brilliant No 1 finally has his head turned.

And while that drama looms once more, United have their sights set firmly on the Spaniard’s potential successor at Goodison Park.

Pickford, 23, cost the Toffees £30million when he moved from Sunderland in June. But a realistic price tag if United come calling could be around £50m which would not put off Mourinho’s money men in the aftermath of De Gea’s sale.

United have been planning all the time for De Gea’s possible departure and they have done remarkably well to hold on to the Spain No 1 for so long.

However, the Madrid interest, including a possible swap deal, will rear its head this summer and United are already hard at work to deal with life after De Gea.

Meanwhile, Mourinho is ready to bring Spanish babe Mario Soriano from Atletico Madrid to Old Trafford when he is 16.

Super Mario is rated as the best player at the club’s academy but they can do nothing about him leaving when the season ends in April.

Soriano would go straight into United’s youth ranks. He would become the best Spanish kid to head to United since Gerard Pique was plucked from Barcelona in 2004.
